Here comes the sun: solar power assembly
Theme: Solar power
Country: Tajikistan; Britain and Ireland

We all depend on the sun! Help your class understand how solar energy works and excite young people about the potential for cleaner and greener energy.

Use our assembly to explore how solar power is benefiting people around the world, including Mathura, a 10-year-old from Tajikistan. Solar power and an energy-efficient stove have made a big difference to life for Mathura and her school friends.

'I always come to school, even in winter. We often don't have electricity. In winter our classroom was heated with a small wood stove but we still had to wear our coats and hats in the classroom.'
