Mission Renewable - Captain Energy Pants


For ages people have believed that energy equals progress. As a worldwide search for cheaper and cleaner energy continues, we are on a mission … a mission to energize young scientists and engineers to think about energy! Join EnergyPants on an amazing adventure where participants explore various forms of energy, from potential to kinetic and electrical to renewable sources like wind and solar. Participants will design and build catapults, roller coasters, explore simple machines, design and build paddle boats, water wheels, wind mills, and solar ovens, and race renewable energy toy cars. stemforkids.net/courses/adventures-of-captain-energypants/
