We use energy every day to make life easier, from boiling the kettle to turning on the lights and travelling to school or work. Explore energy systems and their impact on our environment.

In this session students will consider the energy systems used across the world today and the impact these have on our planet. We take a look at solar, wave and wind energy and how renewable energies minimise the contributions to climate change.

Students will:

  • explore the history, impact and future of fossils fuels
  • explore some renewable energy sources including solar, wind and wave generation
  • take on a design challenge to create a renewable energy generation system.
