Over the last two weeks, ScottishPower Renewables has been investing in the region’s schoolchildren with Mad Science workshops and careers talks to promote a career in science and engineering.

ScottishPower Renewables is committed to inspiring the future generation of engineers and scientists to work in the offshore wind industry and the workshops formed part of its East Anglia ONE Skills Strategy.

It has commenced onshore pre-construction work for its East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm.

The 102 turbine windfarm, 30 miles off Suffolk, is planned to meet the electricity demands of up to the equivalent of 500,000 homes. St Mary and St Peter Catholic Primary School in Gorleston and North Denes Primary School in Great Yarmouth took part.
