History

History

The Schools & Homes Energy Education Project over the past several years has successfully developed an educational method and resources in working with educational establishments and community groups

primarily in the Yorkshire-Humber region.

The method and resources provide opportunities for people to use and develop their creative, inventive and problem solving skills essential in the growth of their personal and professional abilities in the home and workplace.


Hard to reach

Hard -to-reach

We have linked up with professionals in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy to work with the hard-to-reach ( e.g. hearing impaired ) and within community & young peoples’ groups.

Making learning enjoyable whilst developing problem solving and team building skills through family workshops, courses and training.

Exploring the potential for employment and training opportunities within the field of energy conservation.

Community Self-Help Solar

A community based scheme in South Yorkshire-Humber in which disabled and non-disabled participants worked individually and together as a team to construct full-scale solar water heating panels for installation and use in their community garden.

Workshops were run as a partnership between Schools & Homes Energy Education Project, Heeley City Farm Energy Project, Burton Street Community Centre

and Pinfold Community Gardens, Cudworth.

Learning to understand

The educational method uses our unique energy efficiency and renewable energy educational resources* to learn scientific concepts and make informed decisions about ones’ energy use:

*Model solar car/boat/lorry

*Mini-solar pump kits

*Home & school energy surveys

*Web-based resources.

Learning to understand


Solar car boat building

The solar car can be built within 30 minutes creatinga solar device that works giving one a sense of achievement, ownership and enjoyment.The car is then transformed into a solar boat.

Solar Car & Boat Building

The builder of the car or boat is also given the opportunity to improve its’ performance in applyingscientific concepts of friction, polarity, voltage, current and effect of light intensity.
