As our society continues to use energy at an ever increasing rate we are being forced to think carefully about where we get our energy from and how we make the most effective use of it. Join us in learning about existing and possible future alternative energy sources and how these might help us build a more sustainable future.
In this unit of study, students will learn about existing energy sources and production as well as emerging and potential future alternative energy sources. Students will research solar power including investigating the operation of the PN Junction as well as investigating advancements in the production and efficiency of the solar cell. They will investigate how energy is transformed and stored, learning the chemistry and physics behind how batteries and fuel cells operate and learn about how electric motors work.
Students will explore a range of existing and developing alternative energy sources and how these relate to a push towards sustainable energy production.
