Young Adults (14-18)

Magnificent Revolution’s work is really accessible to all ages. We’ve had an amazing interest from young adults. Building a bicycle generator or a 12 volt sound system is a brilliant introduction to renewable technology and energy.

12V SOUND SYSTEM WORKSHOP

Duration can be flexible (min 3h to max 8h)

This workshop is for those interested in learning how to build a sound system running on DC electricity. By the end of the workshop participants will have learnt how to build a small 12V sound system (including car stereo amplifier, mixer and speakers) that can be powered by a bicycle or directly from a battery. 12V DC is a safe form of electricity and installations running on 12V DC don’t have to be certified by an electrician.

Participants will find out about:

* Basic system design
* DC electricity basics
* Load assessment
* Power generation
* Powering with batteries
* Control and monitoring of power
* Health and safety

Basic D.I.Y skills are an advantage but are not essential to take part in any of our workshops.

PEDAL POWERED GENERATOR WORKSHOP

Duration can be flexible (min 3h to max 8h)

MR facilitates this workshop for those interested in learning the ins and outs of pedal power generators. Our workshops have a good balance of theory and hands-on experience. Participants can
discover how to use their own bike as part of a small power station, capable of powering computers, stereos, TVs and other small household appliances. 240V AC power can be hazardous and should be handled with care and may require an electrical safety certification.

Participants will find out about:

* Basic system design
* Load assessment
* Power generation
* Electricity storage using batteries
* Conversion of DC to AC electricity by inverters
* Control and monitoring of power
* Health and safety
