• STAEDTLER runs energy workshop at Welsh primary school

        • The latest event in STAEDTLER’s year long community programme was an energy workshop at Maesycwmmer Primary School on Wednesday 11th May. 

          As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, STAEDTLER is running an event every month during 2016 in association with environmental charity Groundwork Wales.

          Two workshops were held with pupils from year 4 to year 6. Project Officer, Laura Bull from Groundwork gave the children presentation on energy, highlighting the difference between renewable and non-renewable energy, and then supervised the practical part of the workshop.

          The students drew a spider diagram listing everything they could think of that uses energy. Following on from this, they were given a box of Lego and Meccano with a set of instructions to build a solar powered car. There was a solar panel on the back of the wheel motor which the students pointed outside to attract sunlight but as the weather was cloudy the motors hardly charged, thus demonstrating how renewable energy can be hard to obtain. 

          Fortunately, the motor was also battery operated and once the cars were built the children took them in to the hall to race against each other.   

          Richard Billingsley, Marketing Executive at STAEDTLER (UK) Ltd said, “the children really enjoyed the workshops and learnt a lot about renewable energy. I know I certainly did.”
