Water Power

Energy use awareness

Student project

Do you know how many ways are to obtain electricity from water? How do they work? How about their impact in your life? The normal lack of these answers led the develop of a game-like project which attempts to educate about the energy production from water.

A simple brick works as interface, playing the role of a tidal, river or wave power plant. Through experimentation the user explores how the different power plants work, how much energy do they produce and how do they affect people’s lifestyle and environment.

This chance to play on first hand with the different combinations of energy source and size and observe its consequences, makes the learning easier for the user, as well as the knowledge remains longer.
