About Us



A complex system or design whose internal workings are hidden or not readily understood.

We felt like this was a bit like OE. We know it works from years of experience, but we often fail to unpack “why” it works. Hence at Blackbox OE, we provide Outdoor Educators with distinctive learning experiences so that YOU can be confident of providing better OE experiences for YOUR participants. Let us help unpack what happens in the black box so that you get consistent results, and you start standing out from other outdoor instructors. Let us help you unpack the true power of OE!
