Lancaster Enercities Competition

Tuesday 9th November 2010 sees the Lancaster 'Local' Enercities competition for youngsters at Lancaster University... Schools involved are Central Lancaster, Ripley and The Lancaster Girls Grammar with Games students of Lancaster and Morecambe College adding to the variety of ages competing...

The day kicks off for us at 08:30 with the collection of the partners from the hotel and drive up to Lancaster University InfoLab21 Building... After meeting all the players around 09:45 (approximately 60) the groups will divide into 3 revolving groups of around 20 taking tours of the Engineering facilities, Environmental Science department and playing Enercities... Each department will be offering related talks concerning energy themes that appear in the game and relate to local issues, energy production and energy use... Prizes are awarded to the schools based on the scores in the game and individual players too...
Did I mention the T Shirts for all the players! oh and USB memory sticks for the teachers?
It promises to be a fun day for us all! JL
