NEW SOLAR-ACTIVE WEBSITE DESIGN
WE ARE RE-DESIGNING THE SOLAR-ACTIVE WEBSITE AND WILL NOTIFY ALL WHEN IT HAS BEEN DONE.
OPEN EVENING AND AGM
The open evening of Recovery Insulation & Strip the Willow and AGM of Schools and Homes Energy Education Project/Solar-Active on 17th September was a great success.
VISIT Strip the Willow cafe to see Inno-Therm® installed in the ceiling. They uniquely wanted Inno-Therm® for both thermal and acoustic application. An ‘eco’ insulation option, like Inno-Therm®, saves much more than money and energy/fuel in the long run.
DEBATES AND PANEL DISCUSSIONS
Is our future Nuclear Free or Nuclear? – Debate was a success with some 80 people attending. The audio of the debate is here: http://sheffield.indymedia.org.uk/2010/04/449994.htm
The debate powerpoint presentations can be found on new.solar-active.com/debate.
CASE STUDIES AND TESTIMONIALS
The SOLAR-ACTIVE solar cars/boats used in the Engineering A Better World Solar Detectives Case Study are recommended by QCDA on the National Currculum KS3/4 home page. The Inspired Engineering Curriculum Case Study states that in using these resources and educational method pupils have been helped to transfer knowledge and skills between different subject areas – providing the opportunity for x-curricular schemes for work.
Visit the Solar-Active store for information on resources, such as solar cars and boats, lorries, the mini-water pump, hydro-foil and clock, using our unique flexible solar cell that has significant output under diffuse light conditions.
Minsthorpe Community College used the resources to make learning and teaching enjoyable, foster enthusiasm and raise attainment in developing problem solving skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
