Pupils from Cambois Primary School recently celebrated British Science Week with a bespoke ‘Mad Science’ experience on renewable energy, organised by the North Sea Link (NSL) team and Kinetic Kate from Mad Science.
The day-long workshop taught the pupils at the school in Blyth about different types of green energy; and helped them understand how the NSL interconnector will import excess clean energy from Norway to power homes in the UK.
Days like this really strengthen our relationship with the local community and also promote the benefits of clean energy to the next generation.
Sally Barson, Communications and Stakeholder Manager, NSL, said: “We had a fantastic day at the Mad Science event. We are about to enter a really crucial phase in the interconnector’s construction, so this was a great time to provide a fun, educational activity for the children to enjoy.”
North Sea Link has been working closely with Cambois Primary School since work began on the NSL interconnector. Head Teacher Marianne Allan said: “The Mad Science experience delivered by Kinetic Katie was absolutely fantastic and really helped to bring the science behind the interconnector project to life for the pupils.”
