Renewable Energy

As a renewable energy demonstration centre, we can facilitate renewable energy learning in the classroom from an industry perspective. The workshops that we offer are always hands-on, interactive and practical and allow pupils to investigate the world of renewable energy. By exploring different sources of renewable energy, we are helping young people to understand the current shifts towards sustainable energy sources and preparing them for a greener future. Our workshops typically last from 1.5-2 hours and we can cover all ages and stages from primary through secondary.

STEM Linked

Focusing our workshops on renewable energy, our deliveries are relevant to all aspects of STEM by integrating elements of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths into every session. Working in the energy sector, we can demonstrate to young people the opportunities in STEM careers and help them to develop key skills such as team work, communication and problem solving.

 

Curriculum Linked

We have taken the time to ensure all of our workshops all linked to the Curriculum for Excellence learning outcomes. This allows teachers to plan where our workshops best fit into their class’s current learning and target topics. We also offer flexibility in our workshop content, so if there is a topic you would like us to cover, we’re happy to tailor our delivery accordingly.
