Each of the following resources can be put together by teachers using either the resources on this website or by contacting us where a classroom visit is available.

Energy

The Energy Efficiency programme is available as a one hour presentation for Key Stage Two classes and can be delivered to one or more classes at a time.

During the presentation the pupils learn what energy is, how we all use energy in our daily lives, why energy efficiency is a good idea and what we can all do to reduce the amount of energy we use in our homes and schools, saving us all money and helping to protect the environment.
