Students develop a sun tracking system designed to enhance the efficiency of solar panels. This innovation holds the potential to provide a viable solution for improving the economic and efficient utilisation of solar panels in residential settings.
The primary objective of this initiative is to empower students in recognizing their competencies while nurturing their skills and attitudes through engaging in scientific projects. Throughout the project, students will receive guidance and mentorship from experts affiliated with the University of Technology in Ho Chi Minh City, as well as CREST Mentors who will assist them in their research endeavors. To ensure a strong educational foundation, we have identified core knowledge and skills rooted in the NGSS standards from the United States and the CREST standards from the United Kingdom.
Furthermore, this project is geared towards the development of a sun tracking system designed to enhance the efficiency of solar panels. This innovation holds the potential to provide a viable solution for improving the economic and efficient utilisation of solar panels in residential settings. Additionally, students participating in this project will have the unique opportunity to gain practical experience in working with electrical devices, circuits, and coding, akin to the skills of professional engineers in the field.
In the project, there are:
The STEM ambassador; trained experts from the University, who help students to gain expertise in electronic, embedding code, making flowchart, assembling electrical devices and circuit.
Who will help students understand and meet the criteria for BSA for Silver levels and support STEM ambassadors work well with the students.
The number of students is 2 students in total. They are all from the Saigon South International School in Ho Chi Minh city.
The project runs in various locations within Ho Chi Minh city. These include:
The whole project lasts for 3 months from the end of September 2023 to December 2023.
