Mini Hydro Plant

For the BP STEM AwardTaylor, Sophie, Lauren and I made a mini hydro electricity making device as part of our topic on renewables engineering.  It had to make some electricity by the moment of the water and we had to make an experiment to show how we could improve the design and we looked at the number of paddles.  We had 2 paddles then upped in twos every time and we found out that the more paddles the more electricity was generated. We built it out of K-Nex  and we entered this in to a competition but sadly we didn’t make it in to the final. The reason we entered this is so we could improve our engineering skills and to try to make a renewable source of energy out of basically nothing.
