Wind Turbine Visit

The Science Club recently toured the wind turbine at Green Park

Recently we were offered the chance of a tour of the wind turbine at Green Park, Reading. The Science club were keen to take advantage of the offer, so a trip was organised by Mrs Matias and Mrs Thomson.

With climate change and understanding of energy issues being an important part of our society as well as on the curriculum, the tours around the wind turbine in Green Park, Reading are a great learning tool for all ages.

The tours take place at the turbine itself, and take about 45 minutes to an hour, Kate Ingham, the organiser showed the students around and then discussed the facts/ figures of the turbine and also related it to climate change and to the wider energy agenda.

The tour was interactive, giving students the chance to take a good look at the turbine and carry out experiments.
