A website and energy education programme being developed by Transition Bath and Bath: Hacked has been trialled at Freshford Primary School. the aim of the trial was to improve the website we have developed which displays smart meter data from schools in Bath, and allows school’s to compete in a competition to save energy by completing a series of tasks, which earns them ‘awards’. Feedback from the trial will be used to improve the website ready for our Autumn programme of energy education with primary schools in Bath. The programme is FREE and comes with professional support for teachers, will educate pupils on the subject of energy, include curriculum subjects like Maths and Science, and will help schools reduce their costs via energy savings. If you know of any schools which might be interested please let us know let us know- we are actively looking to recruit more schools ?
An excellent summary of the feedback from the trial at Freshford Primary appears on the Bath: Hacked website here.
Currently we have 10 schools signed up to Bishop Sutton Primary, Castle Primary, Freshford Primary, Marksbury Primary, Paulton Junior, Pensford, Saltford, Stanton Drew primary, St Johns Catholic Primary and Twerton Infants. This project is being supported by grants from the Open Data Institute, Bath & West Community Energy, NatureSave Trust and Ovo Energy Foundation.
