Energy Transfer Unit
Developed for the Science Enhancement Programme (SEP) by Mindsets, the Energy Transfer Unit demonstrates a range of different energy transfers; for example, how energy is transferred electrically from a hand-turned dynamo to a motor. The unit is accompanied by a booklet that discusses some of the key teaching and learning issues that surround the energy concept, and provides a series of activities that illustrate how the unit can be used to develop simple and coherent ways of talking about energy.
