Tseung Kwan O | Solar Decorative Light DIY Workshop | 15 Dec 2022

Updated: Jun 23, 2023

Date: 15th December 2022 (Thu)

Time: 16:30-17:30

Venue: The Wings II Clubhouse

*Combined with the session of Ocean Wings


Special thanks to the Management Office of The Wings, Kai Shing Management Services Limited for providing support and venues for organising the Young Energy Scientists' workshop on the 15th of December.


The first part of the workshop was the introduction to solar energy and its principles for the children and their parents☀️🕵🏻


Then, we introduced the solar panel application in Hong Kong, such as the solar panels on the top of bus stop shelters or rooftops of schools. Apart from the applications on buildings, solar panels can also be used on some small tools, such as camping equipment 🏕️ !


The workshop also introduced The Wings' solar panels to the households and their children😳🙌🏻 which deepen their understanding of their housing estates! Many parents and children do not know that their housing estates already have solar panels 😎🤩 Thus, we believe this event has given them more understanding and expectations of the application and imagination of solar energy in the community🙌🏻


In the next session, we encourage the children to imagine how they would use solar energy at home or in their community.

Then ask them to draw or write on Post-it notes~✍🏻🎨

The children all showed their creativity: there are solar umbrellas☂️, and solar clothes, which can keep warm👕👚


If they become scientists, they will be able to produce green and sustainable products 🤩🥹


After letting them imagine how to use solar energy, we introduce the importance of solar energy. Climate change has become an urgent problem to be solved, so the development of solar energy is very important❗️ Not only does it save electricity and money, but also saves for the future🌳🏡 - and that is - build a green Hong Kong for the next generation.


In the final session, we asked each family to draw their imagined community on the Solar Decorative Light, hoping that solar energy could be integrated into their lives through this event.


These two lamps, that drew with sustainable elements like the windmills, touched us a lot 🤩 as they let us know that the children and their parents listened attentively to the explanations!


A total of 27 adults and children participated in the solar decorative light DIY workshop that day. The following are some photo highlights of the day:
