Sheldon College launched a student-driven, social business initiative. For two hours per week, Year 7 students participated in the Shining Light Project in the school’s Learning and Innovation for a New Queensland (LINQ) precinct, in order to service the social need of energy poverty. Students worked as small business units in teams of five to design, construct and market financially self-sustainable solar panel lights. When the unit was completed, students promoted and sold their products in a tradeshow event to raise funds for Pollinate Energy. Over 60 visitors attended the tradeshow and purchased fully functioning student-designed and -developed lights. The project provided students with a tool kit of core STEAM-based skills, as well as many broader socially based skills.
