RAHWAY—Roosevelt School in Rahway recently hosted full day of hands-on activities to introduce science concepts related to renewable energy to all third grade gifted and talented students in the district.
Students worked cooperatively to understand how flowing water, wind and solar energy could be turned into electricity, how light from the sun could heat space and how recycling could save energy.
The program included a scavenger hunt to find places renewable energy was being used in the school and places it might be used. The scavenger hunt also included finding out what materials are recycled by the school and what might be recycled. Information obtained in the scavenger hunt will be reported to the school’s principal, so students’ efforts may make a difference.
