Developmental Value

"We’ve been conditioned to think learning only happens indoors while it most certainly can, and should, happen outdoors too.”

Juliet Robertson, Author of “Dirty Teaching: A Beginners Guide to Learning Outdoors”

Developed by teachers, for teachers, and designed for quick shipping and fast set-up, OutClass™ can transform your open space into an effective outdoor school in a single day. Blackboards for teaching, solid, stable, natural seating that maintains distancing, curriculum and equipment storage, buffers between classes, shade and inclement weather protection are delivered and set up in one day without damaging your field. Use this approach to quickly scale-up your classroom capacity outside to take the pressure off your teachers and school inside.
