As part of the "Earth and Space" unit, Grade 7 students studied conditions prevailing on the planets of our solar system.  Divided in groups, they designed and carried out an investigation on how light intensity changes at increasing distances from a radiating source.

“During the investigation we simulated how sunlight can reach other planets, for this purpose we used solar cells, a light bulb and a multimeter. We collected data, measuring distances from the light bulb every 10 centimeters. It was a fun an interesting experience”. Nico & Noureddine, Grade 7.
