This course combines elements of electrical and civil engineering to teach students about how electricity and the power grid work, and how that energy affects our everyday 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 building a wind turbine, making a battery out of a potato, building with solar panels, and building a small-scale “circuit town”.
