We are really pleased to be able to support Practical Action with their solar panel STEM Challenge, which has now been made available to Manx schools. Practical Action has received funding from the Isle of Man Government for a real-life solar power project in rural Zimbabwe and the STEM challenge offers learning about what life is like for those with no access to electricity as well as an introduction to electricity production and how solar power works. All the teaching materials are on https://practicalaction.org/solar-challenge-isle-of-man and there is also a competition that schools can enter to win STEM kit for their classroom. The One World Centre is hosting two solar panel kits that schools can borrow – these are currently available on one-week loans so please get in touch if you would like to use one.
