THE SCIENCETHE SOURCEPOWER UP

Welcome to The Science. Have you ever wondered where energy comes from and where it goes when it is used?

Where does energy come from? If you think about it, energy is essential to our daily lives. We wouldn’t be able to do a great deal: no TV, no computer games, and a lot of the things we use regularly were made in factories, which needed energy for them to do the work. But have you ever wondered what happens to energy when it has been used to fuel something? Have a look in The Source and find out about energy processes. Energy doesn’t just disappear!

Have a look at the Energy Explorer in Power Up and see for yourself how energy is converted.

How much energy do YOU use? Could you guess how much you use in a day, or a week, or even a year? Check out Everyday Use and see what Power House has to offer…

Discuss

The energy that we use has an impact on the world we live in too. Have a look at The Environment and find out what happens when we use energy.

And don’t forget the Quiz: if you’re the fastest you could win a set of videos of last years Christmas lectures (The Secrets of Life, by Sir John Sulston) and a booklet that accompanies the series.
