The project "Solar Energy for Schools" is of great importance for Intellectual schools, where STEM-education approaches are being actively implemented. Intellectual schools support all the priorities of sustainable development, including the spread of renewable energy sources. Strategically correct is the introduction of solar photovoltaic systems in educational institutions. It is the school that creates a careful attitude to natural resources and environmental responsibility, - Kulyash Shamshidinova pointed out.
