Hey kids! Harness the wind and the sun! Power up a whole town without creating any pollution or greenhouse gases. “Power Up!” is the new game on NASA’s Climate Kids web site. In this game, your progressive town gets all its energy from wind turbines and solar panels. You have just two minutes to capture enough wind and solar energy to light up all the windows in all the houses of the town. If you succeed, you win the Platinum Award for clean energy. If just a few windows are still dark, you win the Gold. Silver and Bronze Awards are good, but you’ll learn to do even better. Try this fun new game at http://climate.nasa.gov/kids/powerupcleanly.
