This half-term we took part in a STEAM day where we focused on renewal energy. We linked this to our topic of electricity and thought about ways we can generate sustainable energy such as hydropower generated by water. We came up with lots of interesting scientific questions about sustainable energy:
Then, we built our own water wheels that could potentially provide power. We used everyday items and thought about what design would work well such as the angle of the paddles (spoons) and whether more or less paddles would turn faster therefore generating more electricity.
