Engineering: Solar, Hydro & Wind Powered: Gr. 6-8


Combine engineering and alternative energy (solar, hydro, and wind)! Build cars, cranes, drawbridges, etc. from LEGO® kits and operate them using alternative energy sources. Students working in teams will experiment with wind, water, and solar panels, resulting in a high-powered, high-energy course! Projects include a waterwheel, windmill, Ferris wheel, and solar car. Students achieve an understanding of how energy is developed from the sun, wind, and water. Solar energy can be captured by the LEGO® Solar Cell and used to power their models. On the last day, students will use the concepts they learned to design and create a test car to compete against their classmates.  Please bring a drink and snack daily.
