Quick ideas for games, quizzes and tasks

This section of the website contains ideas for activities that can be completed in a single session, and are based directly on information supplied in the Renewables Past, Present and Future game. Each is in the form of a downloadable worksheet, and can also be accessed by students via the game pages. We intend to add to this resource over time, so if you have any ideas you would like to share please get involved.
