Kevin Pearce and Innovations Children’s Centre, run by Sure Start North Halifax Partnership, were approached by Octopus Energy Group to take part in a special project together.
On 20th July, the energy company visited Innovations Children’s Centre to complete a workshop with the children. The children had the chance to learn all about renewable energy and created drawings which Octopus Energy will now use as projections on the turbines! Octopus Energy own wind turbine number three at Ovenden Moor.
They also had a special visitor, Constantine the Octopus puppet, who spoke about how we can look after our planet, what energy is and how we need to try use less. The children were then provided with a kit to make their own wind turbine. Fact sheets were also given to parents with top tips on how to save energy which included weekly tasks they could complete to reduce energy in the home.
