What is the Learning Curve?
Mitsubishi Electric has a strong sense of our corporate social responsibility and we have therefore made our nationwide Renewable Training Centres available to schools to help increase awareness of renewable energies and widen children's understanding of how these technologies work.
We have already had visits from over 1000 children since launching in the autumn of 2011 and have deliberately planned the events to challenge the children to consider how they think society should cope with increased demands for energy use, whilst also seeking to combat climate change.
schools & youth groups
Our programme has been designed to fit seamlessly into the existing national curriculum, with carefully defined learning objectives , for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils. It also covers many areas Brownie Environment badge and Cub Global Awareness badge.
What do you do?
The three hour* sessions use our interactive, purpose-built classrooms and the live renewable technology our showrooms and grounds. It allows the children to look at energy use as a whole whilst focusing on solar energy, heat pump technology utilising air and ground source energy and the themes of “reduce, reuse and recycle”.
*These can be made shorter for youth groups to fit in with your schedule.
Please be assured that these free sessions are designed specifically to educate and will not in any way be used to promote or sell products.
A workbook is provided for each child containing information on the topics covered and includes space to record findings from experiments, whilst offering tips for the reduction of energy consumption at home.
where is the Learning curve run?
We will be opening for visits in other locations soon including Scotland.
