Energy Show for Primary Schools

Watts Up?

“The whole school were captivated and involved with the performance. A great example of laugh and learn. It is a while since I saw so many teachers laughing until they had to wipe their eyes. Great stuff.”
- Perse School, Cambridge

What's it about?

Electricity – How to Save Energy – Using an Energy Monitor – Insulation – Fuels – Pollution. (Also Measuring and Tables)


Using an electricity monitor, we will show children how much electricity different appliances use: eg a computer, a kettle, lights, low energy light bulbs.
Then we’ll show you how you can easily save energy around the school and at home.
For key stage 2, we’ll also explain about electricity as a fuel, how electricity is produced and a little bit about climate change.

This show can be used as part of our “Knock it Off!” challenge. Schools can compete against each other to save the most electricity over a week.
