This paper illustrates the results of some non-formal education activities organized in the frame of the European FP7 Project called “IRRESISTIBLE”, enframed in the promotional actions that make known the advantages of green energy, according to the Romanian Energy Strategy for 2007-2020, regarding the energy needs with a share of 24% energy from renewable sources. Taking into account the needs to organize non-formal educational settings having the renewable energy as topic, the work presents some contributions related to the guidance of young people in order to develop positive attitudes towards the benefits of using solar energy at the lowest possible price, suitable for a modern market economy and a standard civilized life, in terms of quality and safety. Building on the issues related to non-formal education in the scientific research area, and organized together with teachers and students from Dambovita County, the activities tried to propose a model for enhancing the young students’ attitudes regarding the importance of silicon, from sand to solar cells, and finally to solar energy systems and its applications. All the model parts are defined and experienced at the Scientific and Technological Institute of Multidisciplinary Research (ICSTM) from Valahia University Targoviste, being implemented in the framework of the National Program: “School in Another Way: To know more, to be better!”. In the end, as a main result, a positive attitude of young students related to the environmental protection and clean energy was perceived, underlined also during the demonstrative phase, when models of solar energy were exploited by them. © 2016 The Authors.
