Energy

This workshop gives students the opportunity to work with model wind turbines and to apply fair test principles to see how to optimise performance. Many different kinds of electricity generation are demonstrated hydro, photo-voltaic and thermal. The sessions are well paced with practical sessions on energy transfer and the use of siphons– as well as richly illustrated PowerPoints. They also explore issues of energy security in relation to fossil fuels.
Other elements such as heat-packs have been added at KS2 to make it a more multi-sensory experience. Children operate a model Victorian water mill and play with toys that employ potential energy.
