· Discover the energy sources your community relies on and identify the amount coming from renewable sources
· Experiment with solar and wind-powered technologies to understand how renewable energy sources can be used to produce clean electricity and reduce carbon in the atmosphere
· Use hands-on, minds-on activities to discover how wind turbines and solar panels generate power
· Design a solar-powered home and work with a team to build an infrastructure to power a community for the future
· Find out more about where energy, climate change and sustainable solutions are found within the 2016 Science and Technology/Engineering Standards
