THE householders of tomorrow have been finding out what their future homes might look like with a tour around the Eco House at North Devon College.
The nine and 10-year-old pupils from Swimbridge Primary School were given a guided tour of the house and its environmentally friendly technologies, donated to the college by Loosemore Chartered Building Company.
During their morning at the college the students were taught about the workings of solar panels, linking in with their science curriculum and prompting new thoughts on how renewable technologies could be used to improve every day life further.
Science Teacher, Mrs Jeffries accompanied the students and was delighted to have the opportunity for them to see real examples of a sustainable future, brining the science to life and making learning fun
