HUNDREDS of schoolchildren in East London met university climate experts to learn how they can help make the planet 'cool'.
The 700 youngsters discussed recent discoveries and ongoing problems about climate change and energy supplies with experts at the London Metropolitan University.
The Schools at University for Climate & Energy programme at the university's Applied Social Sciences department is designed to develop education in climate awareness for 10 to 13-year-olds.
Pupils took part in lectures and experiments and in activities to show what measures they could take themselves at school and at home to help combat climate change.
