A renewable energy STEM challenge where pupils learn about life without electricity before designing and making  a simple wind turbine suitable for pupils aged 7-19.

Recently updated this popular challenge introduces pupils to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) and includes a starter activity where pupils simulate how the National Grid supplies electricity to most parts of the UK.

Pupils then explore how life for people in the rural mountainous regions of Peru is different as they live without access to mains electricity. They learn how small scale wind turbines have changed people’s lives, as with a supply of electricity people are able to light their homes, their school and run small businesses.

This challenge enable pupils to gain a CREST Award.
