Solar Spark

We are ambassadors for the Sun; out to educate and engage people in solar energy!

All of us are completely dependent upon massive amounts of energy to go about our daily lives. Have you ever wondered how we can sustain this without the damaging problems that arise from burning coal, oil and gas…? This School of Chemistry run project aims to spread the word about the potential of solar energy to significantly contribute to solving the world's energy crisis.

  • Head on over to the Solar Spark website to learn about the science behind the world’s energy crisis and the renewable energy sources developed to tackle it (with an emphasis on the sun, of course!).
  • There are classroom ready experiments for teachers to bring discussion and understanding of the energy crisis and ways in which solar and other renewable energy sources can help to their classrooms.
