Renewable Energy Set Coming This Fall
The LEGO® Education Renewable Energy Add-On Set, available in late 2010, gives students a unique hands-on experience with various sources of renewable energy.
Featuring a range of new elements including the LEGO Energy meter with integrated energy storage, a solar panel, blades, a motor/generator, LED lights, and an extension wire the set also contains building instructions for a variety of models such as a solar-powered car and a wind turbine.
A Renewable Energy Activity Pack provides six 45-minute lessons and four problem-solving activities that enables students to explore renewable energy through LEGO models while connecting their builds to images of real-life energy sources.
Students investigate energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversion, and consumption while using measurements and data analysis to describe and explain outcomes.
The add-on set can be used with both the Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Set or LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education NXT Set.
