Science Outside the Square: Veolia World Solar Challenge at Victoria Square
This family-friendly event coincided with the end of the 2011 Veolia World Solar Challenge. The RiAus stand at the Sustainable Village in Victoria Square featured hands on activities, displays, demonstrations and presentations. Crowds had the chance to meet special guest, Discovery Channel presenter Zoz Brooks, and learn about solar science at the finish line.
Congratulations go to those who participated in our competitions on the day. Gary Maitland is the winner of a Solar Tree Charger courtesy of aridzone. Thanks Gary for filling in an evaluation form – your feedback helps us keep events relevant and engaging. Congratulations also to Oliver and Tyson, who each won a solar kit for their “car of the future” drawings.
