Developing Renewable Energy Solutions | Creative Solutions to a Global Crisis

Students in Ms. Delevadova’s Grade 11 Environmental Science class were tasked with developing a renewable energy solution—an exciting and ambitious project that required them to research the various renewable and non-renewable energy production systems that exist today. They also had to consider the impact of these systems on the environment. The overarching question for the project was: “How do we get ourselves out of this problem?” The problem, of course, is the global climate crisis we currently face.

Over the course of the project, students worked hard to build their renewable energy models. They constructed solar-powered cars, models to capture methane from landfills to use as energy, and many other creative solutions. They also wrote up their findings, documenting the impact of current and proposed energy programs, and assessing the impact of various renewable and non-renewable energy sources.

Last week, the class had their final work period to finish their models. It was a hive of activity as they put the finishing touches on their projects, and the room was abuzz with the sound of motors and gears turning. The excitement was palpable as the students shared ideas and helped each other troubleshoot any problems that arose. The following day, the class held a gallery walk where the students could see what their peers had built. It was a great opportunity to learn from each other, exchange ideas, and celebrate their hard work. 

As part of their end-of-mod celebration and project gallery, Ms. Delevadova made a layered nacho dip using lettuce harvested by the students from their vegetable grow tower. It was a delicious and satisfying way to cap off the project, and we hope our students left feeling proud of what they had accomplished.

Looking ahead, the class is excited for their next mod, which will be focussed on Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, using our Northcote campus as their classroom.
