    Wind power is one of the most commonly used renewable energy sources. CityU's CLP Power Low Carbon Energy Education Centre (LCEEC) offers visitors an inspiring and enlightening experience to learn about the importance of low carbon energy to address the environmental challenges we face.
    The workshop is divided into 2 parts. In the first part, participants will join a virtual guided tour in LCEEC to learn about the low carbon energy application in Hong Kong and the reasons of using a diversified and low carbon fuel mix.
    In the second part, participants will use Megabricks, an online platform to stimulate building up a wind turbine model with LEGO. They will learn about the electricity generation principle, the advantages and limitations of wind energy.


  • Heat Flows from Cold to Hot Locations. Are We Breaking the Law of Physics? Explaining the Construction and Operating Principle of an Air-conditioner.

  • Date: 29 June

  • Time: 14:00 - 14:30

  • Language: Cantonese

  • Division of Building Science and Technology

    According to the law of physics, heat flows from hot to cold locations. In an air-conditioned room during summer season, heat energy is transferred from the indoor space at a lower temperature (e.g. at 25°C) to the outdoor space at a higher temperature (e.g. 30°C), in order to achieve an indoor thermally comfortable condition. It seems that it is against the law of physics. In this workshop, the basic construction and operating principle of an air-conditioner will be explained.

    根據物理定律, 熱量是從高溫流到低溫的地方。在一個處於夏季的空調房間中, 熱能是從較低溫度的室內(例如25°C), 傳到較高溫度的室外空間(例如30°C), 以達到室內熱舒適的狀態。看似是違反了物理定律。在這個工作坊中,將會詳細解釋冷氣機的基本構造, 和運作原理。
