What a tremendous accomplishment! Everyone at The Holgate Academy is extremely proud of Izzy and her dedication to Babbington Animal Rescue.
Our triple science groups in year 9 and 10 took part in a double lesson workshop on energy provided by EON on Thursday 2nd November 2017. The students learned about how coal is made over millions of years by dead fossilised plants and the need to conserve our fossil fuel resources and the need to move away from the use of fossil fuels and use more sustainable energy resources such as wind, solar and hydroelectric power.
The students worked well in groups to build; model wind turbines, hydroelectric generators and Solar powered generators. This group activity gave the students an insight into how different forms of renewable energy solutions work. At the end of the session there was time for students to discuss different careers in the energy industry including; different levels of apprenticeships and options through university.
