Powering Our World

...offers students a hands on and experiential exploration of how electricity is generated and supplied. Students will gain insight into the technology, production, consumption, conservation, and impacts of electricity systems.

Students will have an opportunity to engage in hands on activities while learning how to answer the questions: What are the sources of electricity? How is energy converted? What are the best ways to conserve electricity? How does electricity production affect climate change?  What renewable energy options exist?

Students will use a wattage meter to compare items that consume electricity, explore solar panel technology and learn about other sources of energy. Each student will also commit to individual EcoPledges.
