Discover. Learn. Explore.
The Rampion Offshore Wind Farm Visitor Centre will be opening soon in the newly refurbished Kings Road arches, just to the east of the i360 in Brighton, East Sussex.
With engaging and interactive displays, the Visitor Centre will be an exciting and educational resource which school groups can utilise.
The Visitor Centre is completely free, but must be booked in advance for school groups, even if your visit will be self-guided, as the centre is a relatively small space and at times could be very busy with the general public.
Free school workshops can be arranged during the Autumn/Winter months, when we can offer exclusive use of the centre.
School workshops will include a mix of activities and information around the topics of wind power, renewable energy and climate change.
Sessions can include: hands-on activities, games, debates and crafts, as well as an opportunity to look around the centre. We are happy to adapt sessions to suit the requirements of each school, so please let us know!
The Visitor Centre can host one class at a time plus teaching staff and assistants, for pre-booked visits.
It should be noted that toilet facilities are not available within the Visitor Centre but public toilets are located along the seafront.
What is there to see?
The aim of the centre is to increase awareness and understanding of the wind farm itself, offshore wind energy and global climate change.
The centre will house exhibitions, interactive displays, games and videos, as well as a 360o virtual reality (VR) experience that will take you out to the wind farm itself!
Quiz sheets, presentations, and activities are also available and provided free of charge to help supplement national curriculum content.
