Energy Heroes an innovative teaching and learning course designed to improve numeracy and science skills through exploration of data associated with Climate Change. Aimed at pupils in year 5, and also with a focus on families and wider society, Energy Heroes shows communities how to be a leader in energy management, saving money, creating less carbon dioxide, and wasting less of the world’s precious resources – truly heroic actions!
Over the course of 6 lessons, children explore where energy is used at home and at school, and have to complete a number of home challenges and quizzes, as well as an energy log book.

The project is funded by UK Power Networks (who maintain the electricity grid), and is being led by Community Energy South who are specialists in community energy. BHESCo is helping to deliver a pilot of the programme to schools in Brighton & Hove, with the hope of eventually rolling out the programme to all schools in the area.
