A Visit from Vattenfall Windfarm

Last Tuesday Herne Bay Juniors School welcomed Melanie Rogers who works for Vattenfall Windfarm in Thanet. Throughout the day, Years 3, 4 and 5 explored the differences between renewable and non-renewable energy, and had a go at making their own electricity! The children also learned about how the offshore windfarm was constructed, and how windfarms adapt to the weather conditions to harness wind power.

Our visitor was very impressed at the behaviour of the children and commented on how well thought-out the questions were that the children asked about the windfarm.
