Power Puzzle


SYRA 2007 Kickoff
For New Teams

Alternative Energy Resources - Meeting the Global Demand

How do our personal energy choices to do things like heat our homes, fuel our cars, charge our  cell phones, power our computers, or even download music to our iPods impact the environment, economy, and life around the globe? Which resources should we use and why?

Explore how energy production and consumption choices affect the planet and our quality of life today, tomorrow, and for generations to come. Can FIRST LEGO League teams find the ultimate solution to this global Power Puzzle?

The Power Puzzle Challenge has been released (as of September 5th), and can be linked to at http://www.firstlegoleague.org/default.aspx?pid=29550.

We have created an easily printed document containing the web content on the Power Puzzle Challenge site - 2007 Power Puzzle Challenge.doc and 2007 Power Puzzle Challenge.pdf.
