A TEAM of pupils from Wallasey’s Greenleas Primary School has beaten nine other teams to go forward as Wirral’s representative in the national Climate Week Mini Challenge.
Their idea – which was to generate power while out cycling and store it for use back at home – was judged to have been the best at the Wirral Climate Change Mini Challenge competition at Wallasey Town Hall.
The Greenleas idea skilfully combines green transport – cycling – with microgeneration of energy; the energy generated by pedalling charging up a battery which could then by used to power appliances in the home.
Wirral’s Mayor, Cllr. Alan Jennings said: “We were thrilled with the quality of entries. The entry from Greenleas was chosen for its innovative thinking yet simplicity.”
