Human Energy Generator (HEG)
School-gen has two awesome Human Energy Generators – small machines that let students use their own arm power to generate energy! The HEG is connected to a light box, so the students can see and feel the difference in energy required to power an LED versus an incandescent light bulb.
There is a curriculum linked, teacher resource for the Human Energy Generator, that gives you a step by step learning sequence and an outline of questions and activities to help develop the students' learning around energy, energy efficiency and sustainability. The Human Energy Generators are available for schools to borrow. Just fill out the form below. Note: the teaching resource can be used without the HEG by showing the students the School-gen Human Generator video clip to the left.
