Cardboard Solar Panels?

Cardboard Solar Panels?

October 02, 2016

Shelton students take the Cardboard Challenge and construct a creative solar power system.

Mt. View students added an egg carton solar panel to the roof of their cardboard house.

Solar power is an important piece of our energy future. We're glad these youngsters are integrating it into their play at such a young age. #STEM

Every house needs appliances. These are #PoweredbyPUD3


Come play the Cardboard Arcade!

READING TIME: 1 minute

Mt. View Elementary students gathered this past Saturday to take on the Caine's Arcade Global Cardboard Challenge. They joined kids around the world to "build something awesome using cardboard, recycled material, and imagination, and then invited the world to play".

The Shelton version of the event was organized by local teachers including Mt. View's Mrs. Hopkins, Mrs. Oblizalo, Mrs. Rhodes, and others. Along with cardboard-constructed arcade games for everyone to play, there were massive amounts of cardboard and supplies to get participants' creative juices flowing.

During the event, a cardboard engineer built a large house out of cardboard. Over the course of the day, almost every child and adult spent time working on it. The group added chimneys, appliances, and furniture, including a microwave, sink, and other kitchen items.

Our personal favorite home-accessory was the egg carton solar panel, which was placed on the roof by a third grader so that they could "operate the things that needed power- the refrigerator, stove, microwave, washing machine, and TV. " Adding renewable solar power to Mason PUD 3's already clean, green hydropower is a real recipe for success.

Great work, Shelton Schools! #GraduationMatters
