As the children visiting us for Skills for Tomorrow #SfT drifted around the exhibition hall, I managed to get some of them to help me do this blog.
Below are the first attempts of my assistants at blogging. I asked them to tell me about the day that they have had so far. And in turn, I helped them publish their very own first blog entry!
Rheanne Shirley and Emma Hobson
Turves Green Girls School
First we did a geography workshop, in this workshop we learnt about affects on the world and how quick we are using the the worlds resources. We got to be creative by making our own campaigns on how we can try and persuade people to reduce the amount of resources they are using. They used figures on how different places in the world are using their percentage of the resources. We then went into the exhibition hall and discovers many other activities to do and keep us busy, we liked the 100% electric car.

The first workshop we participated in was about making and designing a food product to sustain environmental peace and lower cost/Carbon cost release. We also got to design our own product (food) and packaging; it was very fun. The helpers were very helpful too and encouraged us to do think about the carbon footprint of our food.
We then went to the second activity which was about consumerism and we designed posters provoking thoughts on how we can help others.

The first workshop we attended was the visitors centre, we had to choose where the best place was for it to go. We then designed our own sweet and ours was called yummy yums. After we did the geography quiz and we made a poster showing an aeroplane killing birds/ animals because of pollution. So walk to school!! We have really enjoyed are time so far.! We liked it all.

The first workshop we did was a group work where we had to design a visitor centre with our group it was challenging as we had to figure out where to put it and how to draw it on a map. The second workshop we went to the food workshop where we had to design our own food and how much it will cost and the design. In our third works how we did a quiz and we drew a poster about pollution affecting our planet. Overall we have enjoyed the day so far and we have also enjoyed seeing the University!
