6.2 Energy Inquiry

  • Page ID
  • Use scientific data to design renewable energy systems for cities across the U.S., in this interactive from the NOVA Energy Lab. In the research challenge, investigate what energy is, how it can be converted into useful forms, and why some sources are running low. You'll also have the chance to compete with others to see whose designs can produce the most power.

    Start the lab here. Choose a city, watch the related videos and design your system.


    • A screenshot of your system
    • A brief description of your choices
    • The end result and a discussion about how your system worked or didn't work
