Concentrate on Conservation: Learn about conserving energy, common usages of electricity, and how over-consumption can impact biodiversity. Using interactive experiments, students will discover how angles can affect the energy output of both solar PV panels and wind turbines.

Safety Spark! Students will identify the importance of electricity safety while learning about circuits, electricity in their homes and power lines on their streets.
