Having fun with solar energy

Not long ago, we received a donation of 44 solar car kits from TE-Connectivity, a big automotive components supplier located in Speyer. We are looking forward to integrate these cars within our curriculum and some of our students already got a head start, in having fun with this form of energy.

Our school provides hands-on experiences in different fields of study, especially in the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). On the one hand, this enables our students to understand the relations between different elements, such as science and ethics, materials and the environment, or, in this case: energy and movement. Secondly, it provides another crucial element of academic teaching and learning: fun!
