Energy Garden offered 50 free classroom-based workshops to primary schools, where children learnt about solar power, electricity, plants and urban gardening.

The workshops were run throughout 2018.

There were a range of topics suited for both years 4 and 5: 

  • ‘Living plants and Habitats’ (linked with national curriculum)
  • Categorising plants, with real-life samples
  • Sew a seed to take home
  • Planting solar hanging baskets
  • Urban gardening
  • Creating circuits – how to make a buzzer buzz.
  • Experiments with solar panels
  • Graphs and numbers
  • Renewable energy


If you know a school or teacher who would be interested in the Energy Garden project, and would benefit from a free workshop linked to the national curriculum, please contact
