The students also explored samples of flexible organic solar cells and used their imagination to offer products that could incorporate such solar cells. Additionally Olga and Olena made a pitch for ‘Your Innovative Future’ workshop – a Dragon’s Den style activity. In this activity various companies “advertised” their sustainable initiatives to groups of school students (Dragons) , who had up to £1 million to invest in the economy with the most sustainable ethos.
