Power up! Students design and build a wind turbine and light up their town of the future. Along the way they’ll discover the amazing phenomena of electricity and renewable energy, and learn how teamwork can keep the lights on.
Operating in Term 3 each year, the Power Challenge provides scaffolded learning aligned to Level 4 of the New Zealand school curriculum. Teachers are supported with detailed lesson plans, teaching material and resources, a free challenge kit, and where possible a volunteer industry ambassador to help them in areas they may not feel so confident.
