A group of 264 learners from High School Namaqualand had fun learning about wind energy and other renewable energy forms recently. This exercise formed part of Kangnas Wind Farm’s school roadshow. The programme drives at creating awareness of the need for clean energy and is aimed at exposing learners to the basics of renewable energy.
The session was informative and interactive, allowing pupils the opportunity to answer questions and win pencil cases with stationery. The training created such an interest that the learners were very interested in seeing wind turbines and would like to visit the Kangnas Wind Farm.
The programme targets hundreds of high school learners to not only provide information about producing clean energy, but also to let the youth know about the opportunities available to them, relating to careers inherent in harnessing wind energy.
The objectives of the programme included education and awareness around wind energy; encouraging an interest in renewable energy career fields; helping learners understand the construction process and how their specific community would benefit from having a wind farm on its doorstep, both during and after construction.
