Power Engineering 5-6

Turn on to electricity, power plants, green energy, and the power grid.

This course combines elements of electrical and civil engineering to teach students about electricity and the power grid affect our daily lives.

Students learn about voltage, current, and resistance, various methods of generating electricity, the scope of energy usage on the household and city levels, and how electricity is transmitted from power plants into homes.

Projects include constructing wind turbines, making batteries with potatoes, building with solar panels, and creating a small-scale "circuit town".
