Alternative Energy Project Solar


Over these few weeks we have invented a new way to show our passion in saving energy. This new way would be to use solar panels. We have decided to put a solar panel on to a train. We call this invention: Cellic Train. This way trains won't have to use as much energy. Have fun!

1.2

1. Why does the solar train produce lots of energy?

The solar train produces lots of energy because the top of the train is usually hot, so the panels collect the heat and the sun energy.

2. How is the solar train helpful?

The solar train is helpful because the train usually travel a long time, the more sunlight and heat it gets the more energy it collects.

3. Why does the solar train panel takes up lots of space?

The solar train panel takes up lots of space because it has to absorb lots of heat and sun light.

4. Why does the solar train panels absorb heat and sunlight?

The solar train panels absorb heat and sunlight because the top of the train is usually hot so that must mean that the top of the train has to attract lots of sunlight.

5. Why does the solar train panel only fits and works on trains?

The solar train panel only fits and works on a train because trains are really big and absorb lots of sunlight.

6. How much energy do solar panels produce?


7.Can solar panels meet our need?

Yes. Solar panels can meet our needs, it sucks in a lot of sunlight but most of the sunlight we do not need.

8. Why are Solar Panels so Expensive?

because of the awesome new invention and the hard work people did.

9. Is It possible to Make Everything Solar powered?

No, because not all things need power.

No, again because solar panels are huge.

10. Why Do people not use solar panels?

Because of the cost. And sometimes because people don’t think solar panels might work. Sometimes(very rarely) people think their might be radiation.

6.1

Kayleen: In my opinion we did great, but we might need to work on our team work skills. We can’t manage the time very well. And our work was done unfairly. Some people did more that others. Some people help a lot. Overall, the job is done and thats already great.
Zachary: I think we did OK overall but we can do better. For example we we followed the steps but we did not manage our time well. We should have been more organized by spending more time on the important things such as the websites and information, we should’ve spent less time on the scratch and glogster.

6.2


Kayleen: In the beginning we were horrible. We didn’t even finish the questions yet and it was already one whole week. But, after the questions were done we went really well. We finished 2.1-5.2 in a flash. Our Glog was done in a day. Overall, at least we finished the project.
Zachary: I think we were not too organized but we still got the job done. We could have been more organized by one person does something and the other person does something else that way we can get more stuff done.
