April 4th Workshop Review

With over 35 kids ready at the starting line, we raced into our workshop with presenters Solar 1 to make solar race cars. But before the checkered flag came down, Margaret of Solar 1 reminded the kids of the importance of renewable energy. A few smart Green Apple Kids were quick with answers, advising their peers that we currently use way to much fossil fuels (from energy sources that cannot be refilled once the needle hits E).

But that was enough talking about renewable energy, next the kids built cars that used one of its most abundant resources... the sun. They put wheels, cogs, motor and solar panel together after decorating the chassis of the car in a green theme. The mini-mechanics that completed their cars quickly went on to constructed sundials from construction paper and a bit of help from their attentive parents.

A big thanks to all the understanding parents who attended this, our largest workshop to date.

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me...
