JFLL Event News!

This was built by The Energy Kids team. They have a model showing a microwave oven in the kitchen connected to it's energy source (through various intermediate steps) the Niagara Power Project. The simple machine is a turbine that generates electricity from the moving energy of the turbines. They did a great job!
The Great LEGO Builders did a project on running water in the kitchen sink. The simple machine was a turbine pumping water from the surface water source.
The poster for the Energy Kids- we ended up making a game that allows participants to put in order the route that the electricity takes from the river to the kitchen microwave.

This one is from The Great LEGO Builders- it includes the water source, the filtration plant, the water tower and finally our kitchen sink!
