Driving question: What are the other alternative sources of energy that can be used to generate electrical energy to help salvage South Africa’s load-shedding crisis?

Grade: Grade 9

Project Descriptor:

South Africa has been mired in an energy crisis for more than a decade, and as a result, we have seen implementation of “load shedding” to try to reduce pressure on the overstretched grid. Students were required to investigate/design an alternative source of energy for electrical generation to help improve the current status of load shedding in the country.
