HHPS Energy Learning Story

In term four, students explored and found out about renewable energy. They researched and studied the benefits of renewable energy and the impact it can have on the planet. During the exploring stage, students designed and built wind-powered cars. They used a range of recycled items that would have ended up in landfills. The students in Year five and six even got to race their wind cars!

Students then identified a problem; they had to solve that problem using a sustainable solution (renewable energy source). Then they designed and built their idea, showcased at the HHPS Makers’ Faire on the 4th of December. This event is open to schools and the local community.

Students in Year 5 participated in an energy audit to discover the energy usage and compare different learning communities regarding the amount of light emitted. The students also found how much power is being used in each community and using scientific equipment like lux convention meters and digital thermometers to calculate the rooms’ temperature.
