InnoRenew CoE, in cooperation with the SPIRIT Slovenia, continues with educational thematic workshops for promotion of wood and woodworking for primary school students

For the fourth consecutive year InnoRenew CoE researchers are conducting thematic workshops where students identify wood as a material that can be used to help reduce climate change.

They actively engage students in the workshop, encouraging them to identify and discover on their own different properties of wood, such as density, hardness, flexibility, toughness, splitting, and explain how these properties influence the choice of wood for a particular use.

In the workshops, InnoRenew CoE researchers emphasise the importance of using natural renewable resources and explain to students the importance of using wood correctly as a strategy to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (carbon sink).

Students learn about the versatility and beauty of working with wood and the variety of professions that are linked to it.
