Romanian Energy Experiments

Prietenii Pamantului (Earth Friends)
age group
14 to 18
Raising awareness and understanding of the practical uses of renewable energy generation through sustainable energy experiments
Experiment sheets (written by Janus Hendrichson - SPF, Denmark) translated into Romanian by Ion Zamfir
2 teachers of physics are assisting Earth Friends’ volunteers demonstrating how to do experiments that connect the curricular physics lessons with practical aspects of energy production and use. Teachers receive the 10 experiment sheets for analysis and comments. Students receive basic information concerning energy and environmental issues. Earth Friends volunteers assists physics teachers in organizing the experiments. Physics teachers, assisted by Earth Friends volunteers, evaluate the experiments. Earth Friends ask students to evaluate the experiments and to speak about the experiments and day to day life examples.
In the framework of the Sustainable Energy Education and Demonstration Centre, Prietenii Pamantului (Earth Friends) ran a series of experiments for students in the Paul Dimo Technical College, Galati, Romania.The sustainable energy experiments were prepared three months before being launched. All materials and devices necessary to do the experiments were prepared by an Earth Friends volunteer team using the Danish CD “.Energy Experiments”. The programme was possible with the financial support from JJ Charitable Trust from the UK. The Technical College provided the class rooms as well as the school workshops for preparing materials and models to be used in the experiments. Earth Friends, in cooperation with the College’s management team organised the experiments as an extra-curricular activity for 3 months. Every experiment was done in one hour of work in 5 small groups of 6 students, coached by an Earth Friends’ volunteer and a physics teacher. During this time period 120 students had the possibility to do all 10 experiments related to sustainable energy. At the end of the period, all the students were able to prepare all the experiments and to explain the results they obtained.
