Some of these activities focus upon specific technologies and how they work and others look at how an overall power supply system can be...

Build a wind turbine

This activity links to aspects of energy production and electricity, giving pupils the opportunity to follow instructions to create their own wind turbines. This activity could be included in a lesson focusing on how wind turbines are one of many methods used to produce a sustainable energy source.

Underwater Energy (14-16)

This resource looks at the key features, advantages and disadvantages of tidal power as an energy source. Students identify the features of a landscape which will maximise the effectiveness of tidal power, considering the ideal shape of the location, whether the machinery will interfere with other activities,...
