Summary:In this lesson, students work toward understanding the limitations of renewable energy resources if there is no system available for storing the energy. First, students watch a video segment on the engineering design process. Then they are challenged to design a storage system for renewable energy. They brainstorm and research ways in which renewable energies such as solar and wind power can be stored. Then students present their final designs. During this lesson, students should come to understand the steps in the engineering design process and how engineers design systems that convert energy from one form to another and store it for later use.
