The Ecobus has been to Hall Green!
Today in year 4 the Eco Bus came to Hall Green to teach the children about different types of energy we use, how it is used, what was used in the past and what the future holds for us in terms of energy usage.
They looked at where our electricity comes from and the types of fossil fuels we they learnt that burning these types of fuels is bad because it lets of harmful gases that are destroying our environment. After that, they were introduced to other ways of generating electricity including wind, solar and water power and were introduced to the terms renewable and non-renewable energy. They made simple circuits using wires, a buzzer and a battery and also had the chance to make a propeller spin!
Some children even got the chance to pedal two bikes to generate electricity to make cars move on a Scalextric track!
