Case Study: Solar Buddies
As part of our unique Immersion Study Time program, students develop transferable skills that span multiple curriculum areas. The ‘solar buddies’ project sees Year 6 students assess a real world problem, design a solution, prototype, test and eventually roll out a product.
The result was an assessable piece of work that crossed science, geography, maths, chemistry, physics and religion and values education engaging creativity and entrepreneurial thinking. Students developed a solar powered light that offered practical help to those in less fortunate parts of the globe.
