Title: Energy garden for children to play with the sun
Handling of energy, knowledge about options for energy generation, and practical implementation and application are urgent topics that require greater consciousness among the population. To reach the very young, the project “Playing with the Sun”, an energy kindergarten, playfully explains the term energy using a water wheel, a small wind power generator, a simulated photovoltaic generator, and a model railway. The huge success of the project has led the town of Ottnang in Upper Austria to seek funding for such an energy kindergarten.
