Energy4me Teacher Workshop

SPE’s energy education programme Energy4me hosted a teacher workshop for local educators at Offshore Europe. Thirty-five primary and secondary teachers from Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire were welcomed by SPE President Egbert Imomoh, before spending the morning touring the exhibition floor. Exhibitors allowed the teachers to explore the technologies on display, ask questions about careers in the industry, and make links to industry contacts for future classroom visits for their students.

Energy4me hands-on science lessons were adapted for the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) by Aberdeen City Council and Satrosphere Science Centre. They were presented to teachers, who spent the afternoon experiencing the activities to bring back to their own classrooms. During the interactive session, run by Satrosphere staff, the materials were well-received and their ease of use and relevance to CfE were commented on by the teachers. This was much appreciated by the working group.

Colin Black, VP OPTIMA and SPE Europe board member, explains: “Inspiring pupils and supporting teachers to embrace science in class is key to developing the energy sector. Our vision is to support schools and embed Energy4me resources and, as appropriate, provide SPE volunteer support in the curriculum. This excellent pilot project is a great example that could be replicated by many SPE sections internationally.”
