There is much debate about reducing greenhouse gases and how renewable energy sources might form part of the answer. Most people agree that renewable energy is a good thing, but how do people react when a wind farm is proposed to be built near them? The following activity puts students into different roles which will influence how they react to the proposed wind farm.
Although this activity has been written with a strong science bias, it can be taught in design and technology with either a systems and control approach or from a ‘sustainability’ angle, looking at the topic of wind farms and the future of energy production. The sustainability perspective will provide an activity that could involve design and technology, geography and citizenship.
The activity is part of the Skeleton Bob collection.
