How should I prepare my class for this workshop?

Split your class into four groups and assign one adult per group. Maximum capacity 33 children. You can also attend our Get Energised CPD sessions.

At the National Museum of Scotland, you can visit our Science and Technology galleries before or after your session.

What will my pupils do in the workshop?

Find out about the different types of renewable energy sources used in Scotland, then build your own energy-efficient town. Pupils will take part in hands-on STEM activities, working in pairs, to complete the challenge.

You can find a range of resources including our Primary Teachers Guide to renewable energy on our Get Energised page.

A Teachers' CPD session to accompany these workshops will take place on Thursday 28 September. To book your free place, visit Eventbrite.
