Ecobot: Win Rewards for Your School!


Our friend Eco the Ecobot would like to sign up 100 primary schools in our network area.

Eco will reward the schools that reduce their energy use over a 4 month window.

It's simple!

An energy consumption reduction of:

  • 1-5% will be rewarded with £250
  • 6-10% will be rewarded with £500
  • 11-15% will be rewarded with £750

Specially commissioned Lesson Plans, including maths, science, English and geography will be available alongside some useful resources to help the teachers encourage the children in their challenge. 

We will also award special recognition prizes for innovative ideas which have a positive impact on overall energy consumption.

Poster Challenge

Ecobot's second challenge is now underway.  Create a poster with an energy saving message!

Here are a few of the entries we've had so far.
