Abstract

Developing enthusiasm and creativity to resolve world energy problems is a dilemma facing educators. How can educators bring the excitement of real-world issues into their classrooms? What kind of affordable equipment can they use? This project seeks to develop materials and means through which Middle and High School students can creatively engineer solutions to existent problems. What kind of turbine, in a gravity-fed system, would generate the most energy? Results from an engineering thought survey and turbine energy production are presented in this session.
