Engineering: Solar, Hydro, and Wind Powered

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 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
