A wind energy development in Scotland has opened its doors to teach local children about the benefits of renewable energy.

Whitelee Wind Farm features more than 100 wind turbines and produces enough renewable energy to power almost 200,000 homes in the local area, reports Deutsche Welle.

David Moody from the Glasgow Science Centre explained that the wind farm development is helping to educate the youngsters about how renewable energy is produced.

One of the parts of the tour is a workshop that teaches kids how the farm makes the most of the renewable energy sources available to it.

"The aim is to find out what shape of blade works most efficiently," he said. "They always seem to enjoy this."

Whitelee Wind Farm is located just 20 minutes from the centre of Glasgow in Scotland and has a visitor centre, as well as a cafe, for people to spend the day learning about renewable energy
