Primary School pupils had the chance to become ‘Smart Scientists’ for a day and learn how to save energy as part of E.ON’s Smart Kids education programme.
Year 5 and 6 pupils at Putnoe’s St John Rigby Catholic Primary School, Putnoe Primary School and Shackleton Primary School in Bedford took part in interactive workshops to understand more about energy, where it comes from and how to use it efficiently in the home.
Pupils completed a series of hands-on games and activities with the support of Prof Smart Alec and his assistant Neon Bright.
During the sessions, pupils donned white lab coats and worked against the clock to help Prof Smart Alec regain his smartness.
St John Rigby headteacher Adam Palmer said: “The pupils have learned some useful tips to save energy and came out of the workshop full of enthusiasm to share them at home.”
