Naturesave Funding

A while back we told you that we were lucky to have been awarded Naturesave Trust funding. Due to this fantastic gesture, we have been able to purchase new K’Nex kits. The kits are all STEM based, with most having a renewable energy focus.  These will allow us to diversity our educational offering, providing a different hands-on learning experience. By using K’nex, pupils of all abilities are able to build their model, using their ideas and present this to the rest of the class.

For further details of the kits that were bought and how we are using them, please see our education pages or view our photos on twitter or facebook.

Naturesave funding

We are delighted to announce Naturesave Trust funding for our education programme. They have very kindly agreed to fund new kit, which will be used in our school/college deliveries. Bright Green Hydrogen are looking to purchase K’nex kits which will be used to teach pupils about renewable energy and how it can be stored and used. The kits will be STEM based and will allow pupils to learn through hands-on experiments. K’nex have a line of educational kits which are especially designed for school use.

The Naturesave Trust was established in 1995 as the charitable arm of Naturesave Insurance. As part of Naturesave’s environmental commitment, 10% of the following insurance policies is paid directly into a trust fund, which is then used to benefit specific environmental, conservation and community renewable energy projects and charities throughout the UK:
Home Buildings, Contents & Renewable Energy Systems Insurance
Personal Annual Travel Insurance
Personal Accident & Illness insurance
Group Travel & Personal Accident / Illness insurance
Excess Buy Back insurance
Small Scale Renewable Energy Insurance
The Trust has funded hundreds of projects since it’s inception, ranging from installation of a wind turbine at a school to the conservation of water voles in Dorset. The Trust prefers to provide start-up capital to small projects to get them going, rather than to contribute to the general administration costs of a larger charity or company.

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. 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 of learner.

Our deliveries are relevant to all aspects of STEM by integrating elements of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths into every session. 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.

We have taken the time to ensure all of our workshops are  linked to the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) 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. Our most popular topics include wind, solar, hydrogen fuel cells, and our new renewable energy K’nex kits funded by the Naturesave Trust.

Our STEAM Progression Pathway 1920  is available to all Fife primary schools and offers an engaging, structured and repeat delivery programme that allow pupils to build their STEAM involvement as they move through school starting at P1 all the way up to P7. The workshops are staged so that pupils start with topics such as friction and energy moving through to harder sessions such as hydrogen fuel cells. Please get in touch to find out more.

We are delighted to have our workshops accredited as part of the CREST Award scheme by the British Science Association. Learning about “Clean or Dirty Energy” or “Exploring Hydropower” counts as one of eight activities required for the Star Award. For older pupils we offer our “Hydropower”, “Recycled Racers”, “Solar Vehicles” or “Wind Investigators” activities which count as one of eight activities required as part of the SuperStar award. Learn more about the workshops here.

CREST AWARDS LOGO

The CREST Awards scheme is the British Science Association’s flagship programme for young people. It is the only nationally recognised accreditation scheme for STEM project work (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects, providing science enrichment activities to inspire and engage 5-to-19-year olds.
