Engineers from AtkinsRéalis recently joined forces with Primary 6 pupils to delve into the realm of Net Zero and carbon footprint reduction.

Jamie Fuery (Class of ‘18) and his colleagues Joseph Mowatt and Lewis Whyte, worked with the year group to help them understand more about sustainability. After giving the pupils insights into their careers, they were set the task of building a wind turbine from everyday materials. 

Morayo shared: “I really enjoyed working with my group to design a wind turbine. I learned about Carbon footprints.”

Henry added: “I enjoyed learning about the different sources of energy.”

Following the workshop, Primary 6 have been set the task to design and create posters with ideas of how we can make Robert Gordon’s College reach Net Zero. 

The collaborative effort aimed to empower pupils with the knowledge and tools to champion sustainability and drive positive change in their community.

How about some solar powered lamps in school or an electric vehicle shuttle for pupils to travel to Countesswells? Watch this space for the enthusiastic engineers we are shaping for the future!
