UNION — A virtually unlimited, environmentally-friendly source of green enery and the means of harnessing it was the subject of a study by a group of very special students last week.

The Gifted and Talents students in Mrs. Hughey’s 3rd and 4th grade class at Foster Park Elementary School investigated the use of solar power. They explored the possibilities of using the sun to provide energy for our use each day in our homes as well as our school.

Future solar devices range from using sunlight to warm houses to the latest technological advances such as photovoltaic solar power clothing that could be used to charge our personal electronics.

Students also made solar ovens that will allow them to make S’mores while in class.
