Creatives at LEGO MINDSTORMS have come up with a unique Lego set for kids that makes them accustomed to the three renewable energy sources –solar, wind and water – and lets them investigate energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversion, and consumption. Dubbed as the Renewable Energy Set, the instructive set simply tags on to the Simple & Motorized Mechanisms Set.
The renewable energy set comes with a new activity pack containing building instructions on how to create a solar-powered car and a wind turbine. When connected to the NXT Brick, the unique elements of the set (solar panel, generator, and LEGO Energy Meter) work as sensors. Moreover, it allows kids to measure and analyze the outcomes through real-life models.
