 At Miller Elementary students are using the eLab energy LEGO projects
to learn about electricity and alternate energy sources.  Parents have volunteered to help.
Student power was used to turn a handle on a motor to use it as a generator to store electricity in the LEGO capacitor.  The students measured how far a car could go with 10, 20 and 30 turns on the generator.  I liked their careful measuring, recording and graphing.  We learned that turning speed also had to be kept constant.
A sound activated toy was used to activate a touch sensor that was programmed to start a motor back and forth to turn a LEGO model of a wooden toy merry-go-round.
