  • SciQ Sequences

Type: Activity
Learning Strategy: Imaginative inquiry

The activities are set in a futurist plot, where Eolienne has been sent back from 2050 to warn the world about climate change.

In activity 1, Eolienne and her friends are drawn into the music industry by a TV programme that interrupts and speaks directly to Eo. A voice from the TV urges the friends to look at the waste of energy in the music business as a way to understanding the World’s problems.

In the next activity, Eolienne finds a mysterious message on her locker door at school. Inside is an envelope containing seven cards. Eo, Teri and Gio set out to find the message in the cards.

In activity 3, having been alerted to the waste of energy in the music industry, Eo contacts a representative of ‘Julie’s Bicycle’ a consultancy working to reduce the energy wasted by that industry. Catherine works with the students to help them understand the energy efficiency problems.

The climactic activity 4 centres on Guy Ferrero, a music industry mogul. He thinks the wastage of energy in his industry is of no importance. Eo and friends are finding ways to persuade him to see the ‘green path’.
