Each year our education programme is supporting 15 schools (c. 450 children) across our renewable portfolio. This includes an annual visit to Coombeshead and renewable workshop for Diptford Primary School.
The sessions are designed to help children familiarise themselves with the technology and understand the importance of renewable energy in modern day society and give them a good understanding of the impacts of climate change. All teaching follows The National Curriculum and links to subjects including science, maths and geography. Classroom resources such as solar powered toys are also provided to assist learning.
‘The children learned a lot and were really engaged. They now understand how solar farms work and the purpose and benefits to a solar farm’– Dipford class teacher
