Our world is warming. Is that a problem? During this workshop, your pupils will investigate the possible global consequences of climate change over the next 50 years, from sea level rise to drought. Using a combination of discussion, animation and activities, pupils will investigate the greenhouse effect and the various sources and sinks. The workshop culminates in an interactive quiz to test your pupil’s knowledge.

Energy sources and sustainability: Through exploring non-renewable energy sources, I can describe how they are used in Scotland today and express an informed view on the implications for their future use. SCN 2-04b
Technological developments in society: I can investigate the use and development of renewable and sustainable energy to gain an awareness of their growing importance in Scotland or beyond.
Tools for listening and talking: When I engage with others, I can respond in ways appropriate to my role, show that I value others’ contributions and use these to build on thinking.
