Switched on Schools

Meet Ray Current and his dog Eddy. They both love exploring and have found lots of different forms of natural energy like the sun, wind and water that can be used to provide us with power for our homes and schools. These are called renewable energy sources and are really good for us to use because they don’t harm the environment and will never run out.

Let Ray and Eddy show you around to help you find out more about different ways to use renewable energy…don’t worry about getting lost - if you do just click on the Switched on Schools sign in the top corner and Ray and Eddy will come back to help you!
