Hi Residents of Green City,

Welcome to our new blog-o-sphere as you settle in to life here and a little more independence is gained as you learn how to life with others and improve your own environment.

We would like to use this blog to share your experiences while going through the Challenge share your thoughts ideas and also homework this is the best place for you to share help & assist each other in understanding what were trying to achieve.

    Good and Bad points about dams
    Good point
    Provide protection against flooding
    Provide electricity
    Provide a feeding-point for man-made bodies of water

    Bad point
    Expensive to build
    Good target for terrorist activities
    When compromised must be rebuilt completely

    Hi Residents WEEK 3 and this week we were going to attack the Solar Panel Challenge. Not too much got done but a lot of progress on other things were made.
    So this weeks research i would like you all to look in to and investigate Solar Panels, What are they? How do they work? Where are they made? How much do they cost? What is the production cost? How much energy do they make/waste? How big are they? What colour are they? .. Who invented them? Do they work? question question question & lets have a debate.

    Its week 4 and again we tried the Solar Panel Challenge we had a few weeks break and the team wasn’t quite working as it should be so I stepped in and guided you through the ITERATIVE process.
    Also we revisited the old question
    “Is it easier to fix a BIG problem or a small problem?”
    All the video links are on Dropbox Ive posted you the link to the digital homeowkr sheet, but for here lets re-ask the homework question
    How much SOLAR energy does it take to power a ..?”
    1) Light Bulb
    2) A TV
    3) a PC
    Good luck

    Green City resident engineers had a whale of a time this week did we not? Finally the ebb & flow of the Iterative process came together and completion of the Solar Panel Challenge is close at hand.
    Teamwork was fluid this week communication was clear objectives were grasped & the frustration of the last few weeks seems to be disappearing in to a warm reflective learning memory.#
    HOMEWORK
    we understood how the photovoltaic cells work the process from sun to appliance explained and discussed well but we didn’t yet find out how much energy is required to power things in the house so I shall pose that question again
    How much SOLAR energy does it take to power a ..?”
    1) Light Bulb
    2) A TV
    3) a PC
