Renewables project

In 2010 S1 pupils at Inverness High were involved in an interdisciplinary learning project relating to the learning context of Renewable energy.  This involved the sciences, social studies and technologies departments in planning for learning relating to a scenario where the learners were presented with the scenario of an island which had been cut off from its fossil fuel supply and had to find the best solutions for generating electricity by harnessing energy from renewable sources.  The power point shared here was presented by Ben Sparham from Inverness High and Real Project at the Learning and Teaching Scotland Climate Change seminars during a workshop seminar to share with other practitioners the thinking and experiences behind this project.
