Scouts Go Solar Challenge
In case you didn't know…
- The world generates more than 66% of its electricity from fossil fuels, which releases huge amounts of carbon dioxide, causing the greenhouse effect.
- One year’s worth of solar energy reaching the surface of the Earth is twice the amount of all non-renewable energy resources combined.
- The uses for solar energy are endless! It can be used to power homes and businesses, provide electricity for remote areas, and even power transportation.
So let’s make renewable energy mainstream, shall we?
Take this challenge and you’ll be able to:
- Discover different types of energy.
- Understand how energy misuse and poor renewable energy practices harm the environment.
- Assess your daily energy consumption and its sources.
- Create sustainable solutions with others to promote solar energy use.
- Explore various uses of solar energy through a series of activities and experiments.
