Understand the key principles of a clean energy technology network by studying it on a miniature scale. Power your own solar powered electrical circuit. Find out the most efficient way to generate energy from wind. Separate water into hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis and watch as a fuel cell turns that hydrogen into electrical power. Plus, you can measure the effect of alternative energy generation by powering lights and fan modules.
