Anemometers

Children set about making anemometers using plastic cups and sticks.  They then went into the school grounds to work out 'where would be the best place to build a wind turbine?' This activity created lots of discussion about why we might build a wind turbine, global warming, fossil fuels and renewable energy sources.

For the 'Switch Off Campaign' children at The Park have been auditing the electricity used around the school.  They have been thinking about how they can save energy around the school too.
