Power to the People

KS3/4
Duration 1hour 15mins

The industrial revolution and the discovery of electricity transformed our society – bringing both prosperity and great challenges. Here, students see first-hand how steam can be used for electromagnetic induction before they generate the electricity to maintain a steady supply to our mini National Grid. An amazing way to understand the reality of how we keep the lights on in the UK and consider the pros and cons of different energy sources.
