About Us

Can solar energy change the world?

Based at The University of Edinburgh in Scotland, The Solar Spark aims to spread the word about the potential of solar energy to significantly contribute to solving the world’s energy crisis. Our friendly volunteers are made up of solar researchers and science communicators with a passion for solar energy and the possibilities it presents!

Here are some of our volunteers at the Dunbar Science Festival 2015!

All of us are completely dependent upon massive amounts of energy to go about our daily lives. Have you ever wondered how we can sustain this without the damaging problems that arise from burning coal, oil and gas…?

You’ll find us at schools, science festivals and fairs demonstrating just how cool solar energy is! Check our Events page to see what we’ve done so far!
