Lowestoft Energy Challenge

In this video from Teachers TV, two schools and a college in Lowestoft explore different ways of saving energy as part of an energy challenge competition.

Poplars Primary School has a visit from the Green Energy Machine and now has a team of energy monitors in an effort to reduce the school’s carbon footprint. Students from Denes High School carry out a survey to see where energy is being wasted around school and plan to build a wind turbine to generate their own electricity. At Lowestoft College students learn how to convert cars to use biofuel and recycled the waste from the joinery workshops. They are also planning a large sculpture made from waste.
