2019 May – renewable energy open-day, Cardiff

Motaz Ayiad, Davide Pinzan and Wei Liu created a prototype that involves blowing on a mini-turbine, creating enough energy to light up a tiny house. They set it up in a student common-room at Cardiff University and talked to passing Arts and Science students about renewable energy and the European Supergrid. They used the model to show how energy was harvested and transferred to homes, and Motaz explained the significance of SCADA (a computer system to monitor and control data).

They developed their model for schools to raise pupil interest in science and renewable energy. Their creation and ideas led to InnoDC delivering workshops to European science teachers in Brussels, as part of the 32nd and 33rd Science Projects. See the model close-up in the video below.
