The Human Energy Generator

As part of the Digital Technologies curriculum students have been given the chance to explore the difference in energy requirements between LED and incandescent lights. 

The Human Energy Generator is a small machine that lets students use their own arm pedal power to generate energy! The generators are connected to a light box, letting students see the difference in energy required in powering an LED versus an incandescent light bulb.


Students, staff and parents had great fun exploring the energy requirements of the two bulb types.  There were many talking points around how we can all change to more efficient energy uses, which in some instances included not using energy at all and walking or cycling rather than being driven to school.
