Supergrid

Teams compete as different countries in Europe to generate electricity. They need to build their own wind turbine towers out of Knex and blades out of card, before competing in rounds to try and generate electricity at the lowest price possible whilst still breaking even (making the smallest profit). It’s a competitive, fun and engaging atmosphere.

Data is gathered remotely from each team and displayed through a central console, so students can see the energy their team is generating in real time. Competition rounds mean that teams compete to generate electricity at the lowest price possible.

The level of challenge can be varied to suit students of different age and ability levels.
