Kent glasshouse complex Thanet Earth has launched a website, discoverthanetearth.co.uk, to meet demand for information from primary and secondary schools.

Demand has been stoked by the site's high public profile, including on national TV, and its use as a case study in some school teaching materials.

The website has sections for both primary and secondary pupils, and aims to support coursework in maths and geography as well as science.

It includes a "virtual tour" of a glasshouse, engine room and loading bay, as well as images and other resources for use in school project work.

The 90-hectare site already contains a "Discovery Zone" equipped with its own kitchen within one tomato glasshouse, which can host visiting school and college parties.
