Totnes Renewable Energy Society (TRESOC) is pioneering an renewable energy experiential learning programme for school children.
This year Art and Energy delivered a workshop for children from St Chistopher’s School.
Each child was invited to explore the Archimedes Screw Hyrdo plant at Totnes Weir and then challenged to make their own water wheels using only some string, some secateurs and anything they could find on the river bank.
“Art and Energy ran a brilliant water wheel workshop as part of Tresoc’s Renewable Energy Experiential Learning Programme with St Christopher’s school. It was a perfect way to creatively experiment with water, energy, and other materials. The children really enjoyed themselves.” Sally Murrall-Smith, TRESOC
