Creating Energy

Can students use chemical reactions to develop a new cleaner and safer form of energy?

We create energy through chemical reactions (like burning coal), but many of the ways we currently create energy have harmful side-effects. Students investigate the chemical reactions currently used and, using their knowledge of chemical reactions, consider whether a new type of energy or power could be created which is less harmful to the environment

Key facts:


Creating energy can be tailored to run as a 2-day inset, or can be run across an entire school term.


This project can be tailored to run as a standalone STEM subject, or integrate one or more of the following subjects: Maths, Science, Digital Technologies, Art, Commerce, Geography and English.


Resources include student workbooks; teacher lesson plans; teacher classroom presentation; and, teacher training.
