We researched biofuels and where they are with being produced i.e. how likely it is they will be available to the mass market in the near future. We also researched, via a survey to parents, what people know about biofuels and what they would be willing to pay in order to use it. We then explored how we would market a biofuels product. Majella talked to the children about advertising and marketing - they loved it! We set about creating and designing logos, a poster advert campaign and a television advert.

The Pelicans also enjoyed their sharing work with the Year 1 Lions. We were able to help and support their MIT Challenge work and in return they starred in our TV adverts.

 

By Michael O'Boyle, Year 5 Flamingos Class Teacher

We responded to research which indicated most people are aware of biofuel and its benefit. The market research suggested people wanted guarantees about it being: ethically produced, readily available and affordable/competitive with existing fuel.
