A River Ran Through It

Students research how water is used to generate electricity. They investigate water's potential-to-kinetic energy transfer in hands-on activities about falling water and waterwheels. They take measurements, calculate averages and graph their results. They write about an innovative hydro-electrical power technology after researching the history of the waterwheel and water turbines.
