Ways To Use Sunpower Everyday
Solar Shower Design
When I was in the eighth grade my science fair project was about using the energy of the sun. My partner and I demonstrated 3 ways to use sunshine for everyday activities. For me it was a lot of fun because it got us out of the school building and outside.
We used a galvanized tub to fill with water early in the morning, this showed how by the middle of the day the water had become very hot. We placed a glass gallon jar filled with water and tea bags in the sun to show how tea could be brewed in the sunshine then placed in a near by creek to cool for cool tea at supper in the evening.
Last we showed how a clothes line could be used to dry clothes with. I must admit that in 1977 few people were impressed with the results of our finding because the truth is they were common knowledge things that everyone did on a daily basis especially a few years prior to this.
I recall my teacher commenting that when he was a kid that's the way they always heated the bath water and he had hoped for a little more progressive thinking.Barry's Response
- Sometimes the knowledge mankind has right under its own nose is the most valuable. And we don't even know it. Your description shows us clearly how that can happen. Thanks for your input, Susan.Search
