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.

The challenge introduces a starter activity where pupils simulate how the National Grid supplies electricity to most parts of the UK.

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

This challenge enable pupils to gain a CREST Award.
