The purpose of this site is to give an overview of my project and presentation for Physics 420. The goal for my project is to introduce intermediate level elementary school students to the science behind electricity generation. An additional goal is to discuss the traditional sources of energy used to generate electricity and some of the problems associated with them, and then introduce some sustainable methods that do not have the same environmental impact, such as wind and solar power. My intended outcome for the presentation is for students to become more interested in the science of electricity generation, and to help them understand the importance of trying to find less harmful sources of energy for producing electricity. To the right is an abstract diagram showing the layout of my demonstration system.
Below are links to the various topics discussed during the presentation:
Here are some links to sites that
have lots more information about sustainable energy.
