Love Energy Savings Energy Competition for Schools 2018
Are you a UK school looking for a fun and engaging way to educate your pupils on energy efficiency? We have the perfect lesson plan for you (prize up for grabs!).
Welcome to the Love Energy Savings Energy Eciency Competition for Schools (closing date 20th April 2018). Secondary schools across the UK are invited to encourage their year 7 and 8 students to enter the competition.
Energy efficiency is a hot topic right now with the media, our government and businesses across the UK holding the topic high on their agenda.
Energy efficiency includes electricity, water and gas and it means using less energy to provide the same service. Being energy efficient has many benefits from cost savings to a reduction in CO2 emissions – helping to reduce climate change.
This is a team project whereby students will need to work together (no more than 4 people per team) to develop an idea for an energy efficiency method which could be used at home or school.
The students will then need to create a poster to demonstrate their idea and also submit a written paper of no more than 250 words to explain and support the idea.
What is the prize?
The winning school will receive a £500 grant for their science department as well as a free energy efficiency audit from Love Energy Solutions (part of Love Energy Savings)
The winning pupils will each win a £100 Amazon Voucher.
