Climate Clever Energy Savers 2014
It is with great fanfare and drum rolls that we announce that this fantastic program is up and running again this year! – TA DA…..Climate Clever Energy Savers (CCES) is a student centred, project based learning model that has been a huge success in NSW public schools for the last four years. The aim is to help students design projects that will save energy in their schools. Students investigate energy, climate change, school electricity usage and develop strategies to reduce electricity use in their school. The students submit proposals to their local CCES coordinators (a local Environmental Education Centre – Brewongle are the Western Sydney Coordinators) and can be funded help achieve their aims.
Brewongle will train teachers in a one day workshop and then come out to your school with a huge bag of tricks to motivate and teach students about sustainable energy use. Our solar cars,energy bike and solar ovens are always a hit!
If you are looking for a funded, syllabus linked, well scaffolded and well resourced unit of work for your students in stage 2-5 then you have until next Friday 21st of February to sign up. Go to the advert in this weeks SchoolBiz – here is the link for Western Sydney Schools:
Or go to the CCES website to put in your EOI. http://www.curriculumsupport.education.nsw.gov.au/env_ed/programs/savers/index.htm
This program is only avaible to NSW DEC schools.
HOWEVER! if you are in a private or independent school – look out for a new online learning resource that will allow you to undertake energy or other sustainablity projects in your schools. The Sustainability Action Process will hopefully be online in the coming months and I will blog about it when it is approved.
