The Power Grid Kit is the first fully functioning grid model that provides educators with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore power grid systems and solutions with students of all ages.
Our accessible wooden block design coupled with integrated electronics makes it easy to demonstrate how the grid and its components work together to bring electricity to our homes and businesses. Explore core science standards and the challenges of new technologies with this hands-on, project-based learning tool.
The Power Grid Kit models the flow of electricity from nuclear, coal, natural gas, wind, hydro and solar power sources through substations before being distributed to industrial, commercial, and residential consumers. The platform also models distributed generation in the form of solar gardens and private residential wind turbines to demonstrate the broad range of energy options possible in the future.
