On Saturday we ran a very successful Blokarting course for East Lothian Staff. The staff that took part in the course got to grips with sailing the Blokarts very quickly and made the most of some excellent wind strength and direction on the beach at Belhaven.

The purpose of the course is: showcase equipment available here at Outdoor Ed; to encourage teachers to look at more energetic ways of teaching/learning; to raise teaching staff’s adventure threshold (thereby encouraging them to be more adventurous with their pupils); to have a fun day.

Subsequent to this course participants can now use the Blokarts personally and after logged experience can assist in the delivery of learning through the medium of Blokarting. (Forces/technology/weather systems etc).
