Do you know how electrical energy is created? How can you save it and why it’s important to do so? Have you ever wondered which electrical appliance is the biggest energy consumer?
Answers to these questions, plus much more information and facts from the energy world, will be introduced to elementary school students in Slovakia during the 2019/2020 school year. This will happen thanks to the ECO ENERGY TOUR project and its general sponsor, FUERGY. We are proud to be such a valuable partner in this project.
Our mission is to speed up the process of transitioning to renewable energy sources. To achieve this change, it's necessary to start with the youngest minds. How can our children change their habits when we, the adults and role models, aren’t able to set a proper example? Where exactly does the energy we use every day come from? What is the impact of the energy sources on the environment? In which cases do we waste the most electricity without even realizing it? Our youth are the key to preserving the environment and their education is paramount, but also adults can learn a lot from the lessons we will be giving, so we hope every family takes away valuable information from the program.
We are glad that Thomas Puskailer, a Slovak celebrity, asked us to participate in this unique educational program. We believe that teaching the children about the need for ecological energy production and its conservation can be done in a fun and interactive way. The students will perform experiments, compete against and collaborate with each other in eco-related activities and even sing some fun eco-relevant songs. The future of our planet lies in their hands as well. That's why it's important to teach them as soon as possible how they can participate in environmental protection and build a better life on planet Earth.
Joining the project ECO ENERGY TOUR is possible for any elementary school in Slovakia. All they have to do is visit the official website of the project, www.ecotour.sk, where they can find all the information they need. By the way, did you know that one of the most energy-consuming appliances is an innocent-looking tea kettle? :-)
