First Place: Mme. Steibelt's - Grade 5 Class

  Brittania Public School, Grade 5
Mississauga, Ontario

Mme. Steibelt's Grade 5 students took this challenge as an opportunity to create 14 prototypes of renewable energy! This included 1 solar oven, 1 trash collecting boat, 1 pet food distributor, 1 renewable parachute, 1 windmill, and 9 electric vehicles. 

Finding hands-on Science activities that last more than a few minutes to do and make is a challenge as a teacher. As a teacher in a public school, we also struggle to have enough resources in our school to provide high quality hands-on Science experiments. Students were so excited by their project that parents eagerly bought DC motor kits for their children and extra for the class. I’ve never seen such engagement before!
