Exploring Renewable Energy
Landmark 16 (Renewable Energy)
Ms. Volgyi’s grade 5/6 class had the opportunity to visit Camp Kawartha’s environment centre and explore one type of renewable energy- solar energy. Students marveled at the large solar panels posted outside the eco- structure. Then they to used Lego to build cars powered by a mini-solar battery. The activity generated a discussion about the pros and cons of using electrically powered vehicles and exposed students to different design challenges.
