Affordable and Clean Energy

19 schools across Yorkshire are taking part in an innovative programme, Energy Heroes, aimed at teaching pupils and their wider school community about the benefits of renewable energy and other energy efficient strategies. Pupils in year 5 work through 6 maths lessons centred around the development of their data handling and problem solving skills in order to improve their understanding of Energy and Climate Change.

Our aim for this programme is for children to really understand energy; where it comes from, how we use it and ultimately, how to save it. We have designed the programme to create a lasting difference to the energy behaviours of pupils, both in school, at home and beyond into the wider community.
