Solar oven

The children built a solar oven, which taught them the concepts of thermal energy, conduction, convection and radiation. They had lots of fun testing their creations by trying to cook eggs and marshmallows in their solar ovens. By using the sun as a natural form of energy, the children started thinking of ways to innovate and come up with sustainable solutions for creating energy that they could use in their community,

 

Solar system

The children learnt about the solar system and the different planets within our Solar system. They built two models of the solar system, which taught them about distance, time, space and gravity. They really enjoyed finding ways of getting the planets to rotate in order to show the relationship between the planets and the sun and learnt a lot about the planets during the process.
