Eco Energy Outreach Workshops Programme
Sustainability education is brought to life for children with hands-on workshops exploring renewable energy technologies, the challenges of climate change and ways in which we, both individually and collectively, can make a positive impact. We work with children of all ages in schools across Cornwall and beyond to assist in the delivery of green education.
A typical full day’s outreach incorporates four sessions lasting 60-75 minutes each. You can choose two topics in one day for example two sessions on solar and two on wind, or have one themed day across year groups. Each session is suitable for up to 30 children.
Workshops are conducted inside a large ‘Planet Earth’ structure which can be erected in your school hall or other large indoor space.
Increased environmental awareness
Experience of simple electrical circuits
Understanding of renewable energy technologies and their benefits for the environment
“The workshops you have developed are fantastic, being both highly interactive and engaging as well challenging the students thinking on issues of sustainability. The feedback from both students and staff involved was extremely positive.”
Mr Latham, Science Teacher, Penryn College
“Each workshop was exciting and stimulating and was well matched to the age of children in each group. The children were totally engrossed in their activities and were able to tell the teacher about the benefits of sustainable energy, from
the youngest to the oldest. The discussion with the school council members was particularly helpful as it enabled them to have a more focused approach to our ‘Eco- Schools’ work.”
Julie Simpson, Headteacher, Antony School
