Aberdeen Adopts SPE Energy4me Program

The SPE Europe Board has approved spending £10,000 to extend SPE’s ­Energy4me program in Scotland.

Energy4me is SPE’s energy information resource for primary and secondary educators. SPE, Aberdeen’s Satrosphere Science Centre, and the Aberdeen City Council have teamed up to adapt Energy4me lesson plans to Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence education goals. The science center has played a pivotal role in helping promote and enhance the learning and teaching of energy topics in schools in Aberdeen in both primary and secondary schools.

With additional funding, more teachers and students will be able to participate in energy education-­related programs such as continuing professional development sessions, classroom activities, and visits to the science ­center.
