Programs, Projects & Technology
Since 2015 Zen Quest Adventures has developed a range of environmental technology modules (ETM's)
Solar 1- Build interest, enthusiasm and understanding of small solar systems by learning how to build solar panels that can charge a smart-phone on a desktop lamination machine.
Smart heating - Build and test micro heating units, flowerpot heaters, rocket stove heaters and others. In this lesson students learn about space heaters and build them with flowerpots, small candles, tin-cans tinfoil and other simple components. We can then measure their heat output and see who can build the most efficient heater.
Micro hydro- Build an electricity generator out of an old washing machine to power an off the grid home. This is a fairly advanced lesson where you learn how to convert an old washing machines motor and drive train into a water wheel for electricity generation.
Stone master- Build a dry stone wall, our technology classes don't just teach modern techniques and technology, they also bring to life forgotten and traditional crafts which we believe have just as much relevance now as they have ever had.
Micro climate- Build a micro green house with Bamboo and PVC sheeting to grow year round food.
These are just some examples of the ETM modules we have on offer, we are constantly developing new and exciting environmental technology and traditional craft workshops to add to our unique blend of outdoor education and environmental technology programmes.
