Ungt Entreprenørskap Sogn og Fjordane / JA-YE Sogn og Fjordane invited UWC RCN to the national ENOVA Renewable Energy Competition for high school students. The teams from the schools had to choose a task from four options and work out a project with the most creative and feasible solutions for reducing energy loss and using renewable energy. They then had to present their solution in 5 minutes. Our team had chosen to work on the example of our College as a possible energy efficient community. The project idea was very diverse and educationally interesting, but the main strength of it was the holistic approach to reach sustainability. The students were working on the topic for weeks with the help of subject teachers István Poór, Economics and Chris Hamper, Physics and the sustainability team leader, Judit Dudás.
After a very successful presentation the UWC RCN team won the Competition for Fjaler Kommune! Later that day they also won in the final for Sogn og Fjordane County. So a colourful, international team of our students will represent the County in the three-day long national renewable energy championship in Trondhein in February 2015.
The winning team students were: Arnold Boros (Hungary), Brandon Mok (Hong Kong), Karma Choedak (Tibet), Muxuan Yan (China), Thalia Viranda (Indonesia), Ricardo Montalvo Guzman (Mexico)
