🔍 Meet the Researchers 🔍
This topic is interesting but hard to write about since there is little information about it. This process has made me a bit stressed because of the extra homework and thinking about what we have to do next. However, I thought it is going to help me in the future.
I feel very fulfilled in getting knowledge from interviewing. I also got great experience in making the questions, I found a lot of unexpected answers that realized that I should save energy. Not only me but also everyone!

HOW THE WORLD WORKS
An inquiry into the natural world and its laws; the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies; how humans use their understanding of scientific principles; and the impact of scientific and technological advances on society and on the environment. An inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment.
Al Qur'an Verses
Al Ahzab (33): 72
إِنَّا عَرَضْنَا الْأَمَانَةَ عَلَى السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالْجِبَالِ فَأَبَيْنَ أَنْ يَحْمِلْنَهَا وَأَشْفَقْنَ مِنْهَا وَحَمَلَهَا الْإِنْسَانُ ۖ إِنَّهُ كَانَ ظَلُومًا جَهُولًا
“Indeed, We (God) offered the Trust (the Spirit) to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and feared it, and humans undertook to bear it. Indeed, it (the soul) is very tyrant, very ignorant.”
An-Nur (24): 35
اللَّهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ ۖ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ ۖ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ مُبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لَا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ ۚ نُورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ ۗ يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
“Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. His light is like a niche in which there is a lamp, the lamp is in a crystal, the crystal is like a shining star, lit from ˹the oil of˺ a blessed olive tree, ˹located˺ neither to the east nor the west, whose oil would almost glow, even without being touched by fire. Light upon light! Allah guides whoever He wills to His light. And Allah sets forth parables for humanity. For Allah has ˹perfect˺ knowledge of all things.”
STEP 1: Identifying Globally Significant Issues
Exploring, Wondering, and Questioning
WHAT IS IT?
ENERGY is an essential part of our daily lives! In Science Studies, energy is something that can do work. We need energy for our homes, schools, and buildings. We power our devices with energy store in batteries. Nowadays, people cannot be separated from electronic devices to power lights, computers, air conditioners, and refrigerators. This can be concluded that energy is extremely important for us. Moreover, the demand for electricity is set to increase and high further as a result of rising household incomes.
In this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the whole world needs energy supply as one of the sectors considered critical infrastructure, especially to work activities. This makes the demand for electricity going higher and higher in almost all the countries. The higher the electricity demands, the more the energy source decreased. Unfortunately, the global problem is most people have not aware of the importance of saving energy and how electricity waste will slowly destroy our Earth. After our research and discussion with mentors, we decided to focus on the issue of energy consumption and figure out the solution to manage it.

Students' Prior Knowledge
We were identifying globally significant issues using the articles that connect with COVID-19 and energy consumption. As for the next step, we put our ideas written in a graphic organizer or mind map about how the energy consumption really matters during this pandemic situation.
STEP 2: Determining Timing and Time Frame
Making Connections between Previous Learning and Current Learning
In STEP 2, we discussed every steps and formulate a timeline to make sure the project is running well. We also analyze our understanding using their previous learning to investigate questions and conduct result to comprehend this topic. Besides that, they also comprehend and plan to take an action for other people surround them within the stated time frame.

Mentor Meeting with the Researchers
During the exhibition process, we have regular meetings with the mentors 3 times per week. to share the progress and organize every step of the process. In this process, students are discussing their ideas and questions with the mentors.
Mentor Meeting with the Parents
At the beginning of the process, we also had collaborative planning with the parents to discuss what will be going on along the exhibition process.
STEP 3: Engaging Support from the Learning Community
Collecting Data and Reporting Findings or Researching and Seeking Information
Virtual Interview with the Guest Speakers
To answer all of our questions we collected in Step 1, we invited some experts in energy through a virtual interview. They are from PLTA and PLN. They gain many new insights about the things they are curious about, the experiment, and something they are possibly do during this pandemic situation.

Students' Reflection after Guest Speakers
After they did the virtual interview with the experts, they made reflections to share their points of view about the knowledge through a graphic organizer to get to know more about this topic.
