At Whitelee Vis­i­tor Cen­tre, pupils took part in a science ex­per­i­ment to de­ter­mine the best con­fig­u­ra­tion of blades to pro­duce the most power on a tur­bine.

In the af­ter­noon, pupils en­joyed time with the ranger find­ing out about lo­cal wildlife and tak­ing part in fur­ther en­ergy ac­tiv­i­ties.
