Engineers Wanted! Renewable Energy Overnight

Overview

6th - 12th
Grades
17 1/2 hours
Duration
The Engineers Wanted! Renewable Energy Overnight program highlights the usage of renewable energy sources, such as wind, sun and water. Students will being their trip by exploring energy concepts and different ways to harness wind. They also learn how the movement of water in the ocean, in the form of tides, currents and waves can also be harnessed for energy usage. They learn how to read tide charts and begin to understand the needs and implications of harnessing power from water. In the evening students will begin to understand the pros and cons of engineering such mechanisms that harness renewable sources. Students will design and engineer their very own wind turbine, solar-powered car and wave energy buoy. In the morning students will test their knowledge aboard our research vessel the R/V Sea Explorer. This program is packed full of engineering and formulating forward-thinking ideas for a more sustainable future.
