COOL SCIENCE PROJECT

KAEL STARR, JACKSON COAD AND RILEY MCGILVRAY, WALKAMIN STATE SCHOOL

-

WE are three year 5 students, Kael, Jackson and Riley, who are working on a special environmen­tal project.

The project is in conjunctio­n with the Tinaroo Environmen­tal Science Centre’s science enrichment program.

Our project is called Saving Watts. We think this project is important because using renewable energy helps to reduce our carbon footprint and lessens the impact on the environmen­t.

By the end of the project we are aiming to power two refrigerat­ors using wind and solar power.

We’ve been helped by – and want to say thank you to – Cameron DeLai at Outback Wind and Solar, Kirk McArdle from RAMcar for donating the batteries and Mr Andrew Radke for teaching us how to figure out the maths of volts and amps.

We are funding this special environmen­tal science project with proceeds from student Hayden So Choy’s cans program from 2019.
