Year 5 Science Shed Some Light

Student News Tuesday, 15 Nov 2022

In Year 5 Science we have been learning about solar energy and light poverty.

Light poverty is when people have limited access to artificial light and is a huge problem in many countries. In small groups we took all of the parts required and collaborated to make a strong long lasting solar powered light which will stand on its own.

We were very proud to have donated 75 lights to students in Papua New Guinea. These students are incredibly resilient and often have to study at night using kerosene lamps which is very dangerous. Giving them these lights means they can safely study at night.
