Hydropower: Energy & Systems image

Grades 6* - 8

Explore hydropower, energy and systems with this FREE workshop! Students will learn the different forms of energy and how energy transfers and transforms within a system using their local hydropower project as an example.

Essential questions students will answer:

  • What is hydropower and how does it work?
  • What are the benefits of hydropower?
  • What are the various forms of energy?
  • How is energy transferred and transformed?
  • How can water be used in multiple ways to generate clean renewable energy?

This workshop is designed for one class at a time and requires 50 minutes. The workshop also requires a stationary presenting space (i.e., one teacher's classroom for three or more periods). Snohomish County and Camano Island schools may request to schedule three to five workshops in one school day.

“The information was clear and appropriately challenging. They (students) loved the hands on components of the presentations.”
