Perry and Kristian have been working in partnership with the Sustainable Schools Project Officer (SSPO) and Alison May of the Community Energy Team from Dorset County Council for the last couple of months. They have been working on a ‘Bird Box Project’ with a view to filming birds in their natural habitat using ‘old’ mobile phones and solar panels to provide energy. Perry and Kristian having been using their IT skills in emailing the SSPO to arrange funding for the solar panels. They have arranged for a photovoltaic engineer to visit the school to support them in understanding how the solar panel works and to provide guidance on how to make up a ‘circuit’.
It is still a work in progress and with the help of Malcolm, the PV engineer, we are in the final stages of putting it all together.
