Children (up to 14)
MR understand the importance of children and young people being equipped with knowledge and skills in order to actively participate in building a sustainable world. MR has developed a series of workshops, providing a space for children and young people to express themselves creatively. In MR workshops, attendees learn about the issues surrounding energy production, consumption, climate change and what can be done to assure a sustainable future.
MR’s workshops are unique as they incorporate our bicycle power generator, which ties in/compliments many aspects of the curriculum from Science to PE.
MR workshops are delivered by young and progressive adults with experience and knowledge in design, art and ecology, creating a fun learning space with good role models.
Our workshops engage participants in:
- Local climate change issues and scenarios
- Visualisation of energy, energy awareness and appreciation
- Learning to examine issues critically and generate solutions creatively
- Recognising the implicit connections between energy use and climate change
- Learning about renewable energy production and technology
- Taking practical action to save energy and reasons why such action is important
- Learning about power consumption of electrical appliances
You can request a workshop sample by contacting us. We’re happy to develop and run workshops tailored specifically to certain age groups and/or events. Get in touch to tell us about your specific requirements.
CHILDREN’S WORKSHOP TESTIMONIALS
“Magnificent Revolution Wowed us all! Every time someone from MAG REV asked a question all Pupils hands went into the air! Especially when asked to try out the Bicycle generator. They learnt a lot about renewable energy and they took action points home with them to start making energy saving actions in their own homes and to make their friends and family do so too!”
