Energy Makers Academy is a revolutionary learning platform that gives young people hands-on experience of what is possible with solar energy systems. Get started with learning about electronics, coding and energy system design, at home or in school.
Get hands-on experience of how a solar energy system works and learn the fundamentals of electronics, coding and energy system design. No prior experience is necessary as we guide you step-by-step. It’s ideal for individual students or as a group in the classroom.
You will get all of the components needed to build a solar energy system as well as a dedicated app which provides engaging learning content, with quizzes and interactive components. Also included is block-based coding environment for you to write programmes for your energy system.
Each area of the energy system is segmented on our dedicated printed circuit board with our app providing information on how it works. You can set your own pace as our lessons are broken down into simple, easy to follow steps allowing everyone to move according to their abilities.
The Energy Makers Academy app has all of the learning materials you need to teach students about electronics, coding and energy system design: Ten modules of learning content, coding challenges and three projects. Each lesson builds on what has been previously learned, giving students the opportunity to apply their new found skills and knowledge. At the beginning of every lesson we provide an overview of what students will be learning, learning objectives and links to other relevant lessons. Throughout each lesson students are provided with interactive components, experiments, coding challenges and links to further learning.
Energy Makers Acaedmy is your hands-on, step-by-step remote learning tool that will help your child learn the basics of programming, coding, and electronics with a focus on skills in a growing industry. As a parent, you don’t need any prior knowledge or experience as you are guided through step-by-step. The kit and app provide the opportunity for them to become confident in programming and electronics. You’ll also be helping them learn vital skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving.
Energy Makers Academy is the ideal way to teach yourself electronics, programming, and energy system design. As all the lessons follow step-by-step instructions, it’s easy for you to work your way through and learn on your own. You can work at your own pace, have fun with all the real-world projects, and increase your confidence as you go. You don’t need any previous knowledge as everything is clearly explained and you get hands-on experience of building a renewable energy system.
The Energy Makers Academy kit comes with several parts and components that will be used to build circuits while completing the lessons and projects throughout the course. Here is a brief description of what is included in the kit:
