To help educators bring renewable energy engineering to their classrooms, REcharge Labs is giving away 10 MacGyver Windmill Class Packs and 10 Solar Town Class Packs to deserving teachers. The winners will then use their class packs to help teams of students enter the MacGyver Windmill Challenge or the Solar House Challenge, two of REcharge Labs’ year-round online design challenges. To enter the giveaway, educators must fill out the application and list why it is important for students to enter REcharge Labs’ Online Challenge. Educators must complete the application, found here, between Thursday, September 15, 2016 and Friday, September 30, 2016.
REcharge Labs hosts three Online Challenges each month – the MacGyver Windmill Challenge, the Solar House Design Challenge and the Wind Turbine Design Challenge. To enter, students must form a team, design and build a wind or solar device and upload their energy output data to the corresponding Online Challenge portal. Each month, REcharge Labs picks a winner based on the device’s energy output, as well as design creativity, and awards the team a $50 cash prize.
