Renewable and Non-Renewable Resources
In this unit students explore unbalanced forces and their effect on motion as well as renewable and non-renewable sources of energy. They will construct a device that makes use of renewable energy and use their understanding of the forces acting to lift the maximum weight.
Explore renewable and non-renewable energy sources
Explore implications of energy sources
Make your own water wheel or windmill and identify the forces acting
Design, construct and test a windmill or water wheel that can lift the greatest possible weight
Renewable and non-renewable energy sources
Renewable energy sources can be harnessed using simple devices
Unbalanced forces result in changes in motion of simple devices
