Sunbury/Macedon Ranges Leader
Solar Our School – Macedon Primary’s Eco Classroom
We want to install solar panels on our Environmental Eco Shed roof to create a better environmental/science learning space for students and our community. This will provide solar power for the use of hot water, microscopes, computers and to utilise collected rain water. This will give strong educational learning experiences in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). It will offer short and long term investigations around environmental sustainability and renewable energy sources.
