Energy *suitable for home teaching*

Produced by Practical Action, these materials contain ideas and support for students undertaking a CREST award. There are stimulus materials that help students look at an issue of sustainable development. This project looks at the issues around providing sustainable energy in poor communities. It encourages students to investigate energy sources such as wind power, solar power, biofuels and fossil fuels. Students also look at how energy can be stored and distributed. The 'Getting Started' guide has teacher guidance on how to link the projects with the CREST awards scheme from the British Science Association.
