The teacher lets the students summarize the different sources of renewable energy and choose a specific topic of energy / group.


Each group looks for illustrations on the specific sources of energy, such as hydroelectric power, and finds an image and a small explanation corresponding to the energy production system.


After the research, each group summarize the information found on a panel or on a software (power point) or a dedicated website to create a poster.
