Energy Engineering: People Power
This resource stimulates investigation into energy transfers, transformations and sustainable energy engineering using a Queensland Museum collection object - the Supernova solar-powered four rider bicycle. Students use this example of how we can harness solar energy to power a vehicle to consider energy efficiency, limitations and even social dynamics when engaging in design engineering.
