2019 YOUNG INVENTORS SOLAR CHALLENGE
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.
Prosper Coffs Harbour Limited (PCH LTD), believes that young people can help address this potential environmental crisis. As a result, we are introducing the Young Inventors Solar Challenge. This is an opportunity for Year 7 and 8 students to put their ideas and skills to the test, and a chance to do something to help the world around us.
School groups can enter the competition and have the opportunity to claim the title of ‘Coffs Coast Young Inventors for 2019’ and a prize for their school.
ABOUT THE YOUNG INVENTORS SOLAR CHALLENGE
The challenge is open to all secondary schools within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area and is aimed at students from Year 7– 8 with a focus on Science and Technology.
Teachers are encouraged to enter teams who will design and create a solar powered invention that has practical application for less than $150. PCH Ltd will provide a total of $100 to each team that enters the challenge to help create their invention (limit of 3 teams entered per school).
The competition will be judged by a panel made up of members from the Coffs Harbour Protection of the Environment Advisory Committee, Prosper Coffs Harbour Board Members and industry specialists.
Please note that the Young Inventors Solar Challenge for 2019 has been postponed to 2020.
The date for the 2020 Young Inventors Solar Challenge will be confirmed by March 2020. If you have any further questions about the event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
