Renewable Energy Circuits & Electronics

The search for renewable energy is on. Let there be light and energy transfer.

The challenge is to design and make a colour-spinning machine that is powered by a renewable energy source; solar or wind. Investigating the basis of electricity and circuits during this interactive workshop, students will also explore energy transfer, forces and engineering design processes. Can your energy-spinning discs trick the eye into seeing colour? 

Learning Outcomes
- Working scientifically
- Investigate the relationship between simple machines and electricity
- Investigate the basis of electricity and circuits
- Use electrical energy produced by a solar panel to light up LEDs, motors and bulbs.
- Verify that energy is transferred by electric currents in a closed circuit

All materials are supplied.
