Renewable Energy at your School
Our Renewable Energy Trailer is proving popular this term, with many students across the region enjoying the benefits of having renewable energy education brought directly to their school. The activities provided with the trailer include hands-on learning in concentrated solar thermal, photo-voltaics, hydro-electricity and wind power.
The trailer recently visited Bungaree Primary School. Their website currently contains some great pictures that captured their experiences.
The Renewable Energy Trailer will be travelling through a number of regional and rural areas in Term 1, 2015. If you are interested in organising a visit to your school, please contact us.
Climate Change Ahead
Planning for our Climate Classroom Conference on December 5th is in full swing are we are delighted to have confirmed The Climate Council's Tim Flannery as our keynote speaker. Registration for our conference is already open and can be completed online here.
We are putting out a call for anyone who is interested in running a workshop on the day. We are running two separate streams this year; our Climate Knowledge Stream will focus on delivering the latest information on climate science, mitigation and adaptation, while our Climate Resources Stream aims to equip teachers from all year levels with the resources and activities to effectively teach and address climate change from within your classroom.
