Everyday Energy

Program Description

This program allows students to observe how their own energy can be converted into movement. They also investigate how various forms of energy can be used to make everyday devices function. As a hands-on case study, students explore what effect the height of a dam has, and observe how energy from falling water can be converted to light up an LED bulb.
