Code vs Climate NEW for 2020/21!

Could your pupils re-imagine a household device or system to save energy, save money and help tackle climate change and programme a micro:bit to design a solution?

YESC has partnered with Scottish Power to launch this year’s annual challenge – Code Vs Climate.  We have 50 micro:bits available free to schools taking part in this project (max 2 per school).

Please note, this project can be done individually or as a class, in school or at home. We want to make it as flexible as possible to enable you to take part.

Building on a successful pilot last year, we are delighted to be able to offer Climate Smarter to a further 50 schools this year,  thanks to the ongoing support of our project partner  Wood.

The project will provide second and third level primary and secondary schools  pupils the resources to investigate how energy is produced, used, and how this is affecting the world around us.   The kit of resources provided allow pupils to run hands-on experiments in class, culminating in the schools designing and building a model of their future smart eco-school.This project also incorporates significant digital elements, making use of the BBC micro:bit as a sensor and smart controller.

Please click here and read the teacher brief carefully and decide if this project is suitable for your class.

This project is fully allocated for this academic year, please fill in the form below to register your interest.


Knots to Watts is an exciting competition aimed at inspiring primary and secondary schools to research innovative offshore wind technologies and use this knowledge to design, build and test a floating wind turbine which generates electricity.

The competition is supported by the Crown Estate Scotland and the Institute of Physics in Scotland.  Following registration, a free kit of components will be provided to incorporate into your design.
