The Homeschool Renewable Energy Extension Pack includes one Renewable Energy Add-on Set and one Renewable Energy Activity Pack. Students will experiment using energy from their own bodies and the three main energy sources – solar, wind, and water – to generate, store, and use power.
The Renewable Energy Add-On Set is designed as an addition to the Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Set, the core set in our Machines & Mechanisms range. The Renewable Energy Activity Pack comes on a CD-ROM and includes six 45-minute lessons and four problem-solving activities that enable students to explore renewable energy sources; investigate energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversion, and consumption; and use measurements and data analysis to describe and explain outcomes through hands-on activities and exciting, real-life models. Also includes a wide range of real-life images, teacher’s notes, student worksheets, and glossary.
Extend the use of the Add-On Set by combining it with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education range. When connected to the NXT Brick, the unique elements of the Renewable Energy Add-On Set (solar panel, generator, and LEGO Energy Meter) work as sensors. This requires an additional parts pack, shown on the Related Products tab.
