Sun!

Our sun was out for some great solar cooking!

Yesterday, we had lots of sun for a wonderful presentation on solar energy with Mr. Dan Redmond. Students learned how solar energy can be used as an alternative form of energy to what we currently use–coal. Students went outdoors to experience how a solar panel can power a fan, as well as to cook some yummy brownies! With wonderful videos and hands on experiments, students got a first hand look at how the sun can be such a powerful renewable resource.
