Innovation & Creative Thinking: Solar Energy Utilisation
Information about this course will be updated for Term 3 enrolment. For more information about the course or to lodge your interest, please contact us
In keeping with the theme of sustainability, this exciting course ‘Solar Energy Utilisation’ explores the concept of converting solar energy from sunlight into electrical energy.
The sun is the most powerful source of energy present in our solar system and possibly a little beyond the solar system boundaries too! Other than supporting life on Earth, the sun also offers us an everlasting source of energy to fulfill our ever-increasing energy needs. Considering the pressing need to produce more energy that does not cost the Earth (literally and figuratively!), solar energy is a great option.
Students will apply their newly gained knowledge to develop a basic proof of concept demonstrator using preliminary programming and easy access hardware tools. Moreover, students will undertake a reflective exercise at the end of each session, encouraging self-regulation and active participation in the learning process. Reflective practice allows students to ‘shine bright like the sun’ even beyond the classroom; an important aspect in the process of lifelong learning.
The success of this course will lie in the encouragement of students to present their ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas, and, using the tools of thinking and relevant knowledge gathered each week, refine their ideas for implementation. The skillset gained from this course will encourage students to actively and meaningfully contribute to solving real-world problems faced in our daily lives.
