We have been visiting local junior schools as part of a wider school engagement programme and recently visited St Columba C. of E. Primary Academy in Fareham.
Jake Stevens, IFA2 Project Manager, led a session for Years 5 and 6 with ‘Mad Scientists’, Super Sian and Electric Eddy. The children were fascinated to hear about National Grid’s IFA2 interconnector construction project and very keen to get involved in experiments to demonstrate how electric currents are conducted. The Van de Graaff generator concluded the session and was met with delight from all the pupils!
Our school engagement programme is open to all local primary schools. We are keen to support children living in the local area, making learning about STEM subjects engaging and fun – for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 0194 576.
