INSTALLATION OF SOLAR ENERGY KITS
School facilities are excellent candidates for the conversion of solar energy, especially in schools with roofs where there are no other facilities. These power kits can be installed on the school grounds, if they are large enough. In schools, solar energy kits can easily compensate for monthly utility bills. It is even possible to use only solar energy to supply the school. In addition, solar energy in schools presents a great teaching opportunity that can enrich classroom content with real examples of the benefits of it.
TRAINING IN SUSTAINABILITY
Training is a learning process that increases knowledge and sharpens skills, improving student performance. The training in sustainability helps to improve student and teacher knowledge about sustainability issues, in addition to help develop their skills to manage a school or community in a sustainable manner. As well as training in sustainability, encouraging dialogue in the classroom can also increase the knowledge and skills of sustainability in the school. The dialogue in the classroom refers to a process of interaction whereby students and teachers change ideas. Everyone makes a serious effort to understand the concerns of others, even when disagreements persist.
PROJECTS IMPULSED BY YOUNG PEOPLE
Young people who learn by playing or doing projects on solar energy will be in a better position to make the right energy decisions when they grow up. Exploration of DIY solar projects, such as the construction of solar robots, cars and solar boats can also give children a better understanding of solar energy while young people can do small projects on school grounds.
