Synergy Schools Solar Challenge

The 2017 inaugural Synergy School Solar Challenge is a joint initiative between Synergy and the Science Teachers Association of WA (STAWA) to further education on renewable energy sources and provide support for our future solar engineers.

The competition, open to Years 6 and 8 Perth metro schools, gives students the opportunity to build and race their own solar powered cars. The team that can modify their car using basic engineering principles to make it the fastest - wins!

Four semi-finals will be held across Perth in late March with the grand final taking place Wednesday 5 April at Synergy Parklands, Kings Park. 

Matt and Kim to the Rescue

Synergy was proud to be able to lend a hand to Perth's renovating angels, Channel Nine's Matt and Kim to the Rescue, as they did a surprise makeover for Aussie battlers, the Flavelle family.

As part of a complete home makeover including a modular extension by Summit homes, Synergy was able to provide a team of staff volunteers to help with the 3-day renovation, a 5kW SolarReturn system, a See and Save energy monitoring device and 12 months free electricity.

Synergy is pleased to be a part of the next Matt and Kim, due to air 19 February. Watch this space for a sneak peek - it's one of the biggest renovations yet!

Synergy Parkland

Synergy Parkland in Kings Park is one of Perth's best loved outdoor spaces for the whole family. This important community partnership dates back many years and is one of which we are very proud.

Synergy Parkland is a delightful family-friendly outdoor recreation area, and a great space for children to explore, learn, and play. Children can run headlong back in time, to follow the footprints of giant dinosaurs, and discover ancient fossils.

Wind your way through the Windy Walk

Recycled materials were used to build the amazing 'Windy Walk' which is 75 metres long and up to 2.5 metres above ground.

Megafauna for mega-fun

Children can take a trip back in time to prehistoric Perth — riding one of the dinosaurs that roamed here millions of years ago. The Muttaburrasaurus was a reptile that needed the energy of the sun to warm its body, and give it energy to search for food.

Now it’s back, in a spectacular life-like form, to give you a history lesson you won’t forget!

Lycopod island

On the central lake you’ll find Lycopod Island and its Island Fort. It’s surrounded by a ring of ancient lycopods, replicas of the world's first trees that existed about 1,200 million years ago.

The trees are made from huge wooden poles that are carved to look and feel like lycopod trunks, with fronds cut from stainless steel. And if you look carefully, you’ll see a giant dragonfly hiding in the lycopod fronds.

Get in touch with the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority
