In this activity, students will compare the advantages and disadvantages of renewable energy sources and non-renewable energy sources and study simple electrical circuits. Using the Moon as context students will build a small Moon rover powered by solar energy, using a small motor and a solar cell. They will also identify the main features their rover must have to go to the Moon and improve their initial rover design.
