School children in South Kesteven will be top of the class in green energy after teaming up last week with one of the country’s leading renewables companies for an environmental workshop.
RWE npower renewables and its education partner Rowanbank encouraged pupils from Brant Broughton and Claypole Church of England Primary Schools near Grantham, Lincolnshire to learn about climate change, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Katy Woodington, RWE npower renewables UK Community Investment Manager said: ”The aim of the workshops we have organised at the two schools is to promote pupils understanding of climate change and renewable energy in a fun and interactive way.”
To compliment the workshops, RWE npower renewables has a host of online education materials for teachers to take into the classroom. The materials are curriculum linked and are available from the company’s website free of charge.
Katy explains: “The educational materials aim to support young people to learn and teachers to deliver the curriculum, in the areas of renewable energy, climate change and what everyone can do to help. The materials include fact sheets and teachers activity packs which suggest a range of hands on, fun and exciting activities to use with young people to really make renewable energy come to life in a fun and easy to understand way.”
