Thanks to the grant from The Naturesave Trust, hundreds of school children will be learning about renewable energy at Bryngarw Country Park. With over 200,000 visitors per year, the Park endeavours to engage and educate its visitors and school groups on the importance of renewable energy and its benefits.
The funding was used to buy Snap Circuits Green Energy Kits, to develop a community energy project which will educate children on topics including geothermal, hydrogen fuel cells, wind, solar, tidal, hydro and many others.
Beth Hopkins, the Education and Development Officer at Bryngarw Country Park is thrilled with the benefits this grant will provide. She said:
“Every year 1,500 school children visit Bryngarw Country Park to learn about nature and wildlife. This equipment will help us widen our programme and allow us to deliver sessions about renewable energy resources and how to ‘think green’. It will be a great addition to our environmental education offer here at Bryngarw Country Park!”
