Power to the pupils at Loch
Pupils at Loch Primary School were treated to a science show to discover the secrets of electricity.
Primary four children were involved in a workshop delivered by Generation Science of the Edinburgh International Science Festival on the morning of Thursday, February 25.
The Power from the People programme gave pupils an understanding of what electricity is and how it can be stored. They also got the opportunity to create some themselves using specially designed hand- powered generators to charge hexbugs and race them around an indoor track.
Primary four/ five class teacher, Lorraine Stewart, said the pupils really enjoyed their morning.
She added: “They couldn’t stop talking about it. The pupils got to learn about electricity and where it comes from.
“I think they really enjoyed creating their own electricity and racing the hexbugs round the track.”
Joan Davidson, Generation Science Manager said: “We are delighted to be touring Power from the People to Loch Primary School this year.
“Over the spring and summer terms we will visit over 600 schools all over Scotland, bringing science to life in the classroom and supporting teachers to deliver the curriculum.”
Power from the People is one of 17 shows and workshops provided by Generation Science that are designed to make science fun, exciting, easy to understand and to help teachers cover the school science curriculum.
