Peachykeen joins virtual food and farming extravaganza

Kirkcaldy’s PeachyKeen participated in the Royal HighlandEducation Trust’s (RHET) virtual Food and Farming Extravaganza, which took place last month.

With the Royal Highland Show cancelled due to coronavirus, RHET worked with partners up and down the country to bring online activities and videos about food and farming direct to the screens of young people.

PeachyKeen, which designs and manufactures products that utilise human movement to generate electricity, created three bite-sized videos using one of its electricity producing spin bikes to power a water vortex, hydroponics system and to show viewers how to make butter!

Andrew Bowie of PeachyKeen spoke to fbm Update. He said:

“The theme of our educational videos centered on the science of water and energy in the production of food. This we achieved with the assistance of Mabel, our milking cow simulator, and our human powered activities, whilst following social distancing procedures.

“Those that participated in the event, especially children, were able to interact with ‘calls to action’ during and following the broadcast.
