Pictures of the practical examples:
Example of a Danish primary school Soendermarksskolen,
(two classes existing of pupils with learning difficulties). Year: June
About 20 children participated in the theme days.
Age group: 14-16
Outcome: To make the children more aware of what sustainable energy is and what
we can do with it.
Resources: Solar cells, miniature light bulbs, wires, diverse wood planks
Task: A part of two school classes made small houses with electric installations,
powered by solar cells. The other part of the classes measured their
walking speed, the speed of small cars, driven by hydrogen. They also
made keepers of the solar cells, so they would have a better angle
towards the sun, to make them more efficient.
Evaluation: The children’s products functioned well, but unfortunately they
could not test it with true solar energy, because the sun wasn’t
shinning, therefore they had to use lamps. The teachers had planed a
presentation evening, where the families could come and see what the
pupils had made and especially the pupils’ brothers and sisters
were very interested in the cars.
