Alternate Sources of Energy

 Pedaling Power 

In 2014, we started an awareness program to introduce children to alternate sources of energy. The first experiment comprised of creating cardboard models of solar cookers. A number of designs were tried and surprisingly they worked. Our children were thrilled. Encouraged we tried yet another source of energy by turning an old exerciser bike into an energy producer. Initially  it was meant to get the errant children to expend their extra energy which they used in fighting into electrical energy, however it never served as a punishment. It thrilled the children and they enjoyed pedaling. We stored the energy into a UPS and lighted bulbs with that. It was an exciting experiment which served multiple purposes like not only producing energy but also reducing calories. Vinayak Mittal a B.Tech student who was volunteering with us  helped us with the project.

We also created a model of a solar bus to house our mobile computer lab which had lean on tents which could be opened  to serve as class rooms on both sides to accommodate children from the slums. To integrate all this into computer learning children created power point presentations on Solar Energy.
