Osney Lock Hydro provides an inspiring educational and practical resource for understanding sustainability, and we have produced three educational packs to support learning on topics related to our project. With lesson plans, presentations and worksheets, the packs are designed to support KS2 and KS3 learning on a range of subjects.
Incorporating short videos, discussion points and highlighting links to cross curricular learning, these resources use Osney Lock Hydro as a case study to bring the topics of electricity, renewable energy, sustainability to life.

These resources were created for us by the wonderful Emma Arnold, Education Officer at Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust and form part of a wider range of educational materials on electricity, solar and our sustainable future which are available from the WeSET website.
Thanks also go to National Lottery Heritage Fund who have funded the creation of these materials as part of our ‘Unlocking the potential of our river’ project.
