Applications for Sine Curve

Students will understand that there has to be exactly enough power on the grid for what is being used by consumers after watching the assigned videos and reading the assigned articles.  Students will use their knowledge of how to recognize and construct sine functions to determine how frequency, amplitude, and DC offset will change what […]

Future of the Power Grid

Students will consider the future of the power grid in light of the data they have been studying about consumption and production if nothing is done to improve the grid, upgrade the grid, and/or change human behaviors.  Students will present suggestions for quick solutions that we could do today and participate in a classroom discussion […]

Power Generation to Energy Consumption

“Help students explore how electrical energy arrives at its final destination, as well as introduce alternative sources of energy. Each student will construct a model home from the pattern provided. The students will then assemble a simple LED and resistor light circuit that is installed into the model house. The model then snaps into the […]
