Our NSF funded program is designed to spark or strengthen an interest in science among high school seniors. Workshop participants will do the activities as the students normally would, with time afterwards for discussion as teachers. Activities will include a game for teaching what ?peak oil? means, building micro wind generators and measuring power output, and tracing energy conversions through various systems.
