Year 9 Generate Interest

EDF Energy, along with a handful of STEM ambassadors, engaged groups of our year 9 students with electricity. They were introduced to the idea of power stations and how they generate the electricity that comes into our homes to power everything from the shower to our mobile phones. They were then set 2 challenges: make their own human-powered generator to light an LED; then design and manufacture a wind turbine to see which team could generate the highest voltage. The overall winning team, managing to light their LED and get the highest voltage of 3.58V were Gracie, Baylee and Shadiya – well-done girls.
