Low-carbon school receives wind turbine prize

Low-carbon school receives wind turbine prize
A secondary school in south Durham is one of 100 to receive an energy-saving product kit as a prize.

The kit, consisting of an "eco-quiet" PC and a wind turbine to power it, was presented by education technology supplier RM to schools who best demonstrated ways in which the energy-efficient equipment would be used in their building.

Wolsingham School and Community College was awarded with one of the low-carbon energy kits for its plans to use it to teach pupils about the impact of climate change.

"We are delighted to have won such an innovative combination of modern, sustainable equipment," science teacher Sue Lister told the Herald & Post newspaper.

She added that the equipment will be used across the curriculum and tied into the school's goal of eventually becoming carbon-neutral.

"As part of a focused unit of work we are introducing the idea of how to make our school more environmentally-friendly and reduce our energy usage," she said.

Students will return to the school from their half-term break on February 25th.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18470777-ADNFCR
