The Centre for Alternative Technology


Inspire, Inform, Enable

Description

We offer fun, facts and stimulating ideas, and cover various aspects of your curriculum, particularly in science, technology and geography for any level from nursery to KS5 and FE. We offer tuition sessions, workshops, guided tours and residential visits adaptable to your specific subject needs. All of our tuition is based on the fulfillment of Education for Sustainable Development (and Global Citizenship in Wales) in the national curriculum. Core subjects for a visit to CAT are Science, Technology and Geography and Welsh Bacc, including very successful tuition for a wide variety of other areas. We can cover a wide range of topics including renewable energy systems, sustainable building, green design, climate change, wind power, water power, solar energy, impacts of electricity generation, organic growing, sewage systems, reedbeds, reducing your ecological impact, Zero Carbon Futures

Of particular interest may be the zerocarbonbritain2030 sessions which take a holistic view of the energy scenario of the UK, and work from a solutions-focused perspective to develop a sustainable energy scenario for a zero carbon Britain in 2030.

We offer practical and theoretical activities, guided tours, residential accommodation for longer trips to explore the local area, and the chance to experience renewable energy and sustainable living in context. Please take a look at the schools/colleges tuition list for inspiration, we can always adapt sessions to your needs.

It doesn't change much from year to year, would be nice to see some of the displays updated. Otherwise, it meets the needs for our educational visit (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13046 )
