Module Summary: AMP-IT-UP - It's Electric
Students use a simulation to develop a procedure and collect data regarding the number of houses powered by a solar thermal power plant under different conditions. They reason quantitatively using linear rates of change to determine the most effective insulation material to use in the construction of the power plant.
- Video - Power Plants and Pollution - A video showing how much pollution is caused by power plants.
- Video - Meet Dr. Henry - An interview with Dr. Asegun Henry, a mechanical engineering professor at Georgia Tech.
