This is our practical, activity centred geography course.
At the start of the year we discussed a range of possible activities.
Our young people decided they were worried about where the fuel was going to come from to run their cars in the future and how they were going to have electricity to power their PS3s.
Sheringham Shoal/ West Runton fossils
Ecotech Centre, Swaffham
Sizewell Nuclear Power Plant
Itteringham Mill hydro-electric plant
We talked about fossil fuels and then visited the beach at West Runton to find fossils, to see the wind turbines at Sheringham Shoal and to study marine ecology.
The 317MW Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm, located between 17 and 23 kilometres off the coast of North Norfolk in the UK, is now under construction. When complete it will comprise 88 wind turbines and generate around 1.1TWh of green energy per annum. This is enough clean energy to power almost 220,000 British homes. Compared to fossil fuels that is a reduction of around 500,000 tonnes of CO² emissions every year.
