Our 3rd graders have been exploring the uses and the importance of solar energy with a special presentation by Mr. Dan Redmond. Mr. Redmond provided students with examples of a solar panel, a solar cooker, and how a fan can work on solar energy. Furthermore, Mr. Redmond shared the importance of this renewable resource by showing several short videos regarding how third world countries can use the sun’s energy for cooking instead of destroying forests for their wood. Students truly learned a lot and enjoyed the benefits of solar cooking by eating brownies that were cooked in Mr. Redmond’s solar cooker. Enjoy the video below….how can you lessen your carbon footprint?
