In this course, students will learn about all different types of energy production--clean and otherwise--from an actual nuclear engineer! Each week we will talk about a different energy production method and talk about how it works, the life cycle of the fuel, byproducts produced, and overall environmental effects of the particular energy production method. Each week the students will be provided with a Nearpod lesson each week. The lesson will include a collaboration board where the...
I have a Bachelor's in Nuclear Engineering, so in order to understand the economic and environmental aspects of nuclear power fully, it is important to understand all other energy production types also.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This course makes use of Nearpod for weekly lessons. No account is needed, but it is the requested that the student provides their name when entering the activity so that the teacher knows who is completing it.
