In our school we formed energetic club in which we included three students from each class (from fourth to sixth grade) that they represent the energetic patrol in their class. The tasks of the members of the patrol are to take concrete actions on energy efficiency in their class, and represent a positive example for all students, teachers, parents, the community.
While conducting the activities, the members of the club will be supervised, guided and accompanied by an adult (our mentor, teacher of Informatics) and members of the ThinkQuest team (Angela J + Angela P + Monika + Vlado).
The Advantages of this club’s working is that it will directly affect the children and influence their sense of responsibility and awareness for saving energy, and through them indirectly affect the adults too.
The meetings of the members of the club were realized three times a week. The members of this think quest club prepared all the materials necessary for realization the training of the members of the Energy Club. Then, the energy patrols conducted the training in their grade. For each activity energetic patrol kept a diary of their work and notes for it.
Within a week the training was realized with all students from I - VIII grade. Teachers and other school employees who learnt about different aspects of energy and to carry out certain activities related to various school subjects. Then follows a period of application of knowledge into practice, demonstrating concrete results and reward from the energy patrols club for the greatest savers of energy.
