Adventure Investigators (AI)

Can your pupils stop an international conspiracy to poison the world's water supply?!

An inspirational programme  designed to support cross curricular, thematic learning.

Suits P6 through to Year 8.

With input from the PSNI Wildlife and Crime Scene Investigations teams and Northern Ireland Water. 

Delivered over 6 half-day activity sessions, pupils  follow an  investigation through a range of challenging environments.  Success depends on teamwork, communication, comprehension skills, risk assessment, use of ICT, analysing and presenting evidence and creativity.


AI promotes positive attitudes to learning inside and outside the classroom.

Through the programme pupils will increase their depth of knowledge of science, nature and the world around them. They learn about the natural environment, wildlife protection laws, the principles of 'Leave No Trace' and the key NI organisations that protect the environment


AI encourages pupils to care for the wild for the communities and for themselves and others

What we learn

As the investigation progresses the pupils develop their practical skills in canoeing, climbing, caving and navigation; as well as bush craft and understanding the natural world. They also increase their knowledge through quizzes and research that touch on DNA, the human body, our water supply and our local wildlife and habitats. The project supports mixed ability groups from P6 through to Year 8 pupils

What people say about

Adventure Investigators

"It's an inspirational project that will definitely be very popular with P7 and Key Stage 3 children. The mix of investigations, physical activities, challenging tasks and outdoor learning all culminate to create a first class World Around Us topic. The pupils felt supported in all activities, and even when a task wasn't achieved, they didn't feel like a failure. They knew there would be another opportunity to try and succeed. BAC should be proud of what they have achieved in creating this unique programme."


- Roisin Lennon - P7 Teacher, St Patrick's Primary School
