We went on an eco-friendly journey with primary school pupils and expanded their knowledge of how living sustainably can have a big impact on the planet. In collaboration with Cumbria Country Council, we presented a very exciting workshop!
Using Hendrikus Van Hensbergen's wonderful book How You Can Save the Planet (an inspiring guide for young climate activisits) as a springboard for invention, we asked the children to invent something that uses a reliable and renewable, greener energy source - wind!
By inventing new and unique items that utilised sustainable power, the children exercised their creative minds and enjoyed some STEM learning.
