  • Toy car: wind up car made out of wood or PVC pipes, with rubber bands around the tires and a stick in the middle as an axel which will wind up the rubber bands as you move it backward.
  • This demonstrates energy transfer since the potential energy gained from moving the car backward and winding the rubber band up is then turned into kinetic energy with the car moving forward.

 

    • Another Idea would be a water mill type of thing which uses water, which is kinetic energy and that can be transferred into electrical energy using a motor. This represents energy transfer because the kinetic energy can be transferred into electrical energy
