P6/7 and P7 Workshops on Renewable Energy

Thanks to Mrs Margaret Lane, from Sentinus, who came to St Mary’s last Friday to facilitate prtactical workshops on Renewable Energy for P7 and P6/7. Pupils created minitaure wind turbines, wired a solar circuit to power a propeller and also conducted an experiement on the force of hydro power.

The hands-on activities enhanced pupils’ knowledge of this increasingly important topic, and followed on from work completed in class around the recent COP26 summit in Glasgow.
