As the first step of the PYP Exhibition Journey, this group found articles about energy distribution issues in Indonesia, where the issue made the students inquire and come up with these questions. This journey will help the students collect the data, document it and share with the communities what action we should take with the government policies, especially regarding energy distribution.

The energy consumption is another issue that cause to the environmental issues.

Through this article, it is proven that housing is one of the biggest crises in the worldwide, and that influenced the to another aspects.


Through this theme, we do collaboration to create the Central Idea for our topic, to help us find the best inquiry. We continue in designing the learning outcomes, lines of Inquiry and Succes Criteria. All of these things are helping us to be focus with the process of PYP Exhibition. Through the first questions that we had, we work together in combining the words to achieve what we need to know.

Step 2: Determining the Time Frame

In these steps, students are encouraged to design the time boundaries to collect all the data for their research. The second step is asking about students’ ability to organize and plan the time frame for collecting. Students should identify all the knowledge they need based on the given time.

Step 3: Engaging Support From Learning Community

This step is encouraged the students to meet the expert to gain knowledge. Based on their inquiries, students design meetings to prove the information and gather the data through social experiments.

What is the human responsibility to save energy? (RESPONSIBILITY)

The knowledge that we got from PT PLN:
1. PT PLN provides more than one power station for every area in Indonesia.
2. PT PLN has started to use renewable energy to save the environment.
3. PT PLN has provided for 98, 63% of areas around Indonesia.
4. PT PLN collaborated with a non-government company to provide electricity depending on the area’s natural resources.

Based on the field trip to PT. Catur Elang Perkasa is a non-government organisation that helps the government solve the problem of alternative energy to support Indonesia’s electricity.

PT Catur Elang Perkasa works as a solar power plant.

Solar panels can work for 25 years.

If you use solar panels, this will help fulfil your home’s electricity use with solar energy.

That way, your home’s electricity bill will be reduced because, during the day, you can use solar panels and electricity at night.

Solar panels can also be used in buildings.

Installation of solar panels according to the size of the building

The knowledge that we got from Om Omar as the representative person of the hydropower station:
1. The government (PT PLN) allows the non-government company to collaborate to support providing the power station.
2. The support will depend on the natural resource in that area.
3. Hydropower is one of the biggest alternative energy that Indonesia uses almost all around Indonesia.
4. The non-government company only get a part as the provider of the power station.


In this step, students are encouraged to collect all the data they got in making a report to present to others so the communities will also get information about electricity and renewable energy. Through this step, students try to interview the communities to find out the facts based on the data from the expert that they had.

Students do two different surveys; qualitative and quantitative. Those methods are taken to make sure the information that they got from the expert and also to make sure the data that they got from the respondents are right and facts.

From the Al Jabr community, we can see that most respondents know the different types of power stations used in Indonesia.

Based on the online survey, we have 150 respondents from around Indonesia citizens. The result shows that in most of them, only a few have an issue with the blacklight issue, which means the government already distribute the energy very well.


Here is the last step of the PYP Exhibition, where the students should take action related to the information they got during the exhibition process. They have independently discussed the action and have different perspectives about what action they can take to share with the community. Here are their actions:

The first action is participation action: they make a comic book about saving energy and then they shared to Al Jabr Community.

The second is social justice action, where the students campaign to save energy to social media, such newspapers and television.
