Power for the World

'Power for the World' is a creative task which gets students thinking about access to energy around the world and the role of renewable energy in solving these issues. By designing their own wind turbine blades out of everyday objects, students will build critical thinking and teamwork skills, as well as a better understanding of power issues around the world.
