What we do
“EDUCATION in STEM, renewable ENERGY & SUSTAINABILITY”
We teach pupils aged 8 to 11 years through classroom workshops, Science days and also supporting primary school teachers with specialist science resources and lesson ideas.
“The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 will turn out” Bill Gates
Learning by doing
Pupils learn about STEM through practical and fun challenges. They explore the real world of science through our specially designed resources. These include science kits, puzzles, team challenges, videos and printed materials.
“I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.” Albert Einstein
During periods of reflection pupils explore what they have learnt and how this applies to their world in the present, and for a sustainable future.
“Learning without reflection is a waste. Reflection without learning is dangerous.” Confucius
The Science topics Let’s Learn Energy covers are part of the national curriculum in Science for 8 to 11 years olds (WORKING SCIENTIFICALLY, FORCES, LIGHT, ELECTRICITY, EARTH & SPACE).
Through puzzles and problem solving challenges we enhance pupils’ understanding of the core subjects of…
…Maths (MEASURE, SCALE, RATIO, PROPORTION, FRACTIONS, DECIMALS, %, MULTIPLY, DIVIDE, ADD, SUBTRACT) and…
..English (VOCABULARY, ROOT WORDS, PREFIXES, SUFFIXES, READING INSTRUCTIONS, COMMUNICATING RESULTS)
All this is done in a fun way to support the science they are learning.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle
As adults we can hopefully all remember inspirational days at school when things seemed to click into place and we suddenly understood why we were learning something. This is what Let’s Learn Energy achieves with pupils.
Pupils start to build a pathway to a sustainable future of their making, that suits their circumstances, interests and abilities and they realise how important Science, Maths and English are for their future. They also have a lot of fun!
“Scientists have shown that because positive and open mindsets produce exploration and experiential learning, they also come to produce more-accurate mental maps of the world.” Barbara L Fredrickson
