 We were asked by Nottingham City Council to design and produce a selection of renewable energy demonstration kits for use with school groups of various ages. They needed equipment which could be easily assembled and taken apart, but were still configurable to a number of different designs.

These are to be used as part of a day of activities about resources, energy efficiency and renewable energy. They wanted kits to demonstrate the concepts of solar electricity, wind power and hydro (water) power.

Here are photos of the designs we eventually came up with - this included small solar car kits, wind turbines with adjustable blades and a micro hydro turbine.

Re-innovation were behind the original solar car kits used by reaction education. They supply renewable energy and engineering activities for a wide range of educational events. Their main activity is to design, build and race a model solar powered car. The kit includes a number of solar panels, motors, wheels and gears along with a whole heap of general building materials (mainly wood and plastic off-cuts). The participants create a solar car and then take it to the race track to compete against the other teams.
