AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Solar Powered Model

Little solar powered model created by Grade 6 students at my school.
(And it works!)
A number of creations are on display at the front of my school, but I only discovered them a few days ago!
I was amazed what the primary students can do!
The school is encouraging younger students to explore new ideas.

Solar energy
An invisible power
With stunning results

This is really terrific, Gemma! As a former teacher, I too, am amazed at what children can do! Thanks for sharing this! Have a wonderful week!

Wow, how amazing and inspiring. If grade school kids can do this, what on EARTH is wrong with governments and big corporations, that they dont do it too and give people CHOICES? Big money killed the electric car when it was first introduced. Corporations rule and decisions are money-based. But solar cars are an idea whose time has come. This is great, Gemma!!!!!!!!!!
