Planet Earth is facing an environmental crisis with the demand for energy outpacing the supply at an alarming rate. Humans continue to consume the Earth’s resources in ways that accelerate carbon emissions, global warming and harmful climate change.
The Challenge was developed to have students design and build their own solar-powered invention that has practical application and fulfills a need within society. It will provide a hands-on learning opportunity that combines science, technology, engineering and math’s, as well as creativity and manual dexterity. Participants will attain a greater knowledge of solar cells, electricity and the power of the sun.
School groups can enter the competition and have the opportunity to claim the title of ‘Coffs Coast Young Inventors for 2020’ and a prize for their school.
Getting involved in the 2020 Young Inventors Solar Challenge is easy! The challenge is open to both Primary and Secondary School students from years 5 – 10 and entry is free!
There will be two categories on the day to cater for both primary and secondary school students. Teams can be made up of 2-5 students, with a maximum of 2 teams entered per school. PCH Ltd will support each team with $50 to go towards the creation of their invention.
