Youngsters at Hawkchurch Primary School learn how the sun’s rays can be converted to electricity
Children at Hawkchurch Primary School got switched on to the benefits of solar energy during a recent demonstration.
On a perfect sunny afternoon the pupils were shown how the sun’s rays are converted into electricity.
And to demonstrate the applications for which the energy can be used two school governors - Bob Ott and David Dredge - took along a radio and a toy car powered by small solar panels.
Both the primary school and the village hall are fortunate to have had photovoltaic panels installed at no cost following the development of a large solar farm in Hawkchurch last year.
