Teach your students how electricity is generated with our interactive model of a power station. First, they will make their model using the colorful parts provided. They will then use it to look at how electricity is generated from non-renewable fossil fuels or renewable bio-fuels.

The models covers different types of fuel, the role of the boiler, what a steam turbine does and how the generator produces electricity. They can even turn the turbine! The model is a great starting point to consider different types of fuel and the pros and cons of generating electricity in different ways.
