What an incredible day at Southbank Primary School on our Redcar and Cleveland College funded Energy Workshops. The Year 6 children not only dazzled us with their amazing teamwork skills but also with their ability to solve mathematical problems and manage their finances as wind farm engineers.

Over the course of the two-hour interactive science workshop, the children learned all about opportunities in our local area in the renewable energy sector and they even became Energy Engineers making critical decisions on where to build a wind farm before constructing their own working model. 

We didn’t just stop there, we also had time for Hydrogen Grand Prix with children setting up their own hydrogen-powered car and learning all about electrolysis to separate the hydrogen from distilled water to power the car!

Resilience, engagement and enthusiasm levels were off the charts and as they were leaving a pupil told us “I’ve just loved today it’s been amazing!”
