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 impacts on our environment.
Fossil fuels and renewable energy. 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 are then invited to follow a design challenge to either build an anemometer, a wind turbine or explore coding skills to create a game in Scratch in the context of minimising energy use.
- Explore fossil fuels – the history, the impact, the future
- Explore renewable energy – solar, wave and wind
- Work like an engineer to build or code a system that applies to renewable energy
