Power of Nature: using electricity

This program encourages students to think about where their energy comes from. Through a collaborative exercise students will debate the pros and cons of different energy sources. Students will use watt meters to test how much energy is consumed by various appliances, learn how energy is measured, and discover ways to reduce their energy footprint.
