Year 7 and 8 scientists study wind and solar energy
Published on: 3 August 2016
Budding scientists with an interest in renewable energy generation have some exciting lessons to look forward to, after old boy Dr David Cooke recently donated five thousand dollars’ worth of laboratory equipment to the School.
The equipment is part of the Science and Technology Education Leveraging Relevance (STELR) program, a national initiative of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE).
“The STELR equipment will allow our students to investigate how to generate electricity by harnessing the power of renewable energy. Investigating solar energy and the design of wind turbines are two areas we will be working on with the boys,” said Nicholas O’Brien, CCGS Science Teacher.
“We are very grateful to Dr Cooke for his generous donation and look forward to some very interesting projects with our Year 7 and 8 students,” said Dr Holly Rose, Head of Science.
