Involve Pupils/Teach Energy


There are many aspects of measuring energy use and implementing energy saving measures that provide opportunities to involve students in the process. By using the logbooks and Wall Chart from the Energy in Education pack (see below to download) students can be involved in recording energy use and looking at where energy is being used in the school. Pupils can also play an active role in energy awareness and take the lead in promoting energy efficient behaviour among the school community.
