Staff and students from The Old Priory School have been spending the day at Reculver Towers with Vattenfall, learning all about the effects of Climate Change and the importance of Renewable Energy.

Mel, from renewable energy company Vattenfall, explained how energy could be produced and then the students had the opportunity to create their own energy using magnets and copper wires. The experiments were a resounding success.

The day was very well planned and the students seemed to really enjoy this practical, outdoor learning experience.

The group had already spent the morning learning about Climate Change and Coastal Erosion. This involved a hands-on experience along the beach.

We’d like thank Mel for inviting us along to see what was going on and we are already looking forward to the next event.
