Water Energy Challenge

Our water energy challenge based activities not only bring a visual element to the energy being created. They also demonstrate how the energy can be transferred to another object.  Whether its pushing water from one level to another or powering a power washer. You know there is going to be a lot of fun when water is involved.  

Check out a few of our water activities below:

Water Lot of Energy Challenge

Two challengers go head to head to pump tanks from our storage tank to the water bottles at the top of the frame using our PeachyKeen Power Stations.

This interactive and engaging activity has been made from recycled materials. 

Originally developed for South Wales Electricity Board, now part of SSE, when the attended the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show. Our solution enabled fans to compete against Welsh Rugby Grand Slam Winner, Ken Owens.

Water Vortex

Vortices can be found in nature in many forms: tornadoes, whirlpools, weather systems, even galaxies – here is the  PeachyKeen version.

Water stored in the lower tank is propelled upwards in a vortex fashion and subsides again with the burbling sound of an Icelandic geyser.

PeachyKeen powered of course with one of our energy creating pedal devices and it also glows in the dark…!!!

An ideal activity for science related events, sport challenges or simply to appreciate the wonders of nature.

Helter Skelter

A popular and fun activity for children. Using one of our mini pods, they must then cycle as fast as they can to push the water to the top of the helter skelter!

Of course, as with many of our activities, this has the added bonus of making turning into a competition for the fastest time! But the question is – what makes the liquid red?

Power Washer

A fantastic fun-filled two player activity which is designed to use human energy to clean bikes but inevitably ends up messy (and wet).

One participant uses pedal power using our PeachyKeen pods to provide the energy to power the washer. The other participant directs the jets to wash a bike or a vehicle.

Alternatively the power washer can be used to knock down targets such as skittles.

PeachyKeen Water Tower

Two participants go head to head. Pedal the bikes to power pumps that push water from the bottom of a large tank to smaller tanks 3 metres up in the cage.

Once the top tanks are full the participants can stop pedalling. Then watch the water being released back down to propel a water turbine that in turn spins up a generator that provides power to illuminate an LED sign and a laser.

Portable Water Tower

Due to the popularity of our original Water Tower, PeachyKeen decided to make a portable version. This enables ease of transport and assembly while still retaining functionality and fun of the full version.
