Coastal Curriculum - Marine Energy
This project will build upon a SDF funded pilot project which provided young stakeholders in Milford Haven Comprehensive School, the chance to benefit from a newly developed education programme linked to the emerging marine energy industry. Students were made aware of innovative developments and potential opportunities associated with local marine renewable energy generation. The aim is to ensure that future generations are better informed and therefore more able to take full advantage of potential career opportunities. The project achieved this by linking key information around marine energy development and careers in marine energy to the Geography National Curriculum (currently at KS3). The benefits of this approach, i.e. delivering the curriculum linked education programme in geography lessons were evident.Following overwhelmingly positive feedback SDF will help to roll out the education resource created in the pilot to all secondary schools in Pembrokeshire. Two lessons will be taught to each of the nine secondary schools which, with an average class size of 30 pupils, means that approximately 540 student interactions will take place. Early engagement will insure that future generations are made aware of important opportunities for career development.
