Water Power

Young scholars observe a model of a waterwheel to investigate the transformations of energy involved in turning the blades of a hydro-turbine into work. They work as engineers to create a model for a new waterwheel while considering resources, such as time and materials, in their design. Students also discuss and explore the characteristics of hydropower plants.
