Water Energy World
Audience: 4th-12th Grade Educators
Where does your water and energy supply come from and how should we manage them for the next 100 years? From the water system to the science of energy and an engineering design challenge modeling the Central Arizona Project, bring the relevant topics of energy and water alive in the classroom with student led projects.
Join us for this hands-on professional development strand which will include hacking solar panels, designing a pump/gravity system in an engineering design challenge, experience electromagnetism and see how we convert energy from one form into another, play around with the world's simplest electric motor, and so much more! Each participant will receive a kit of equipment and supplies worth $200 to bring all these lessons back to their classrooms.
Thanks to sponsorship, this strand is being offered at the reduced price of $75. Additionally, if your school/district cannot pay for your registration, please contact Kerry Schwartz - Director of Arizona Project WET - for scholarship opportunities. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
