Do you want to reinforce your pupils’ understanding of renewable energy sources, whilst developing their problem-solving and team-working skills at the same time? Then take a look at Practical Action’s fantastic ‘Power for the World’ STEM challenge, which is a great introduction to the concept of energy inequality. Working in groups, pupils can explore issues around renewable energy in the developing world, and build their own wind turbines. A perfect activity for a science lesson or STEM club.
