Schools and Learning Guide
Please note: This learning guide is for the 2017 edition of the race
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge has developed a free Learning Guide for all teachers across Australia.
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) Learning Guide has been developed to engage students with BWSC and assist in developing STEM based learning.
The Learning Guide includes unit plans and activities that are based on STEM and solar technology themes.
The Learning Guide uses the “Five Es” model which follows and enquiry based approach to learning in which students build new ideas on top of the information they have acquired through previous experience. The model encourages students to Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.
This resource is designed to best support Middle School students in their learning, but can be adapted to a younger or older student audience.
