Working in teams pupils explore issues around renewable energy in the developing world and build their own wind turbines. Through an interactive starter activity pupils discover how energy access via the National Grid differs between their own country and Kenya. They look at renewable energy solutions and in the main activity have the opportunity to design and build thier own wind turbine.
The Power for the World Activity was originally designed to be delivered by university engineering students from Engineers Without Borders-UK as a schools outreach activity but has since been amended so teachers can deliver directly without additional support
They are designed for both primary and secondary students and are suited to a 60 or 90 minute session, but could be extended.
A perfect activity for a science or STEM club.
