The ‘Stroll With It – Irvine’ group recently got in touch with their inner child during a walk at Eglinton Country Park. They explored the newly opened STEM trail. More usually aimed at school pupils STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. The trail explores different aspects of these subjects in the natural setting of the country park using sculptures and colourful panels to illustrate the learning points. The group enjoyed discovering the willow sculptures of a toad, deer, grey heron, butterfly and sycamore seed and also found a number of wooden sculptures including a fox, bat, badger and owl. The walkers listened out for bird calls, created some natural art and even indulged in a game of pooh sticks during their Wednesday stroll. With more animals to be found, the trail can be enjoyed with children of all ages and is free to use.
The ‘Stroll With It – Irvine’ group meets every Wednesday at 11am and walks take place at various locations around Irvine. For a programme which details all the walks contact the Trinity Active Travel Hub by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
