P6/7 have been learning about renewable and non-renewable energy. We knew that wind was a source of renewable energy as there is always going to be wind! To learn more about wind turbines, we took a trip to Whitelee Windfarm and learned all about how the wind turbines work and how they produce electricity which helps to power just under 300,000 homes in one year! That’s a lot of renewable energy.
After completing a workshop where we measured our own wind energy, we visited turbine 41 and braved the wind to feel the blades flying past us. We then visited the exhibition and played lots of activities which tested our ability to make our own wind power.
Thank you for having us. We loved our trip to Whitelee and have learned lots about wind energy.
