Please join us in the Solar Explorers project. Students will research alternative energy sources with a focus on solar energy. They will look at the UN Sustainable Development Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all as a basis for their research and answer the question: Why is this goal important?
Students will then design, construct and test a solar cooker as an example of alternative energy use and compare their results with other schools. Enrollment for the project will take place in September and the project will run through October and November. The project will take place on the Solar Explorers forum in the iEARN Collaboration Centre.
