Climate Change and Renewables

Hands-on science and technology workshop

Explore how renewable energy can mitigate climate change


The Climate Change and Renewables workshop is designed to inspire deeper thinking of the impacts related to climate change and the use of renewable energy technology to alleviate those impacts. The main ideas discussed during the first half of the workshop are climate change adaptation in the context of climate change impacts. Students deliver live responses on questions proposed by the facilitator dealing with the different impacts of climate change.

The second half of the workshop exposes students to renewable energy technology using questioning linked to the functionality of the technology. Using demonstrative experiments, we explore energy storage, wind turbines and solar panels. Students stay engaged by answering interactive questions about each type.
