Airtricity visits in Scotland  

Education Minister Hugh Henry launched a schools education programme about wind farms at Stanley Primary School, Ardrossan today. The interactive educational programme has been devised by Airtricity, the leading renewables company with several wind farm projects in Scotland, and includes a CD Rom and a pupils’ workbook, featuring a cartoon character called “Tommy Turbine”

The schools programme is focussed on primary schools, especially P5 ““ P7. It covers climate change and the environment, how electricity is produced and used, and the importance of renewables, especially wind power. According to Alan Baker, Airtricity’s chief executive in Scotland:

“Our programme has been developed in Ardrossan where we have involved the local schools and community in our first wind farm in Scotland. Many school classes have visited the wind farm and have seen at first hand how the wind farm operates. The CD and workbook we’ve drawn up can be used by pupils and teachers as part of their class work and will complement planned visits by school classes to our wind farms, which we are delighted to arrange.”

Later this year it will be offered to schools in Dumfries and Galloway where Airtricity is currently building wind farms at Minsca near Lockerbie and Dalswinton.
