Students create content in the Student Personalized Learning System

Today we have 2 student guest bloggers.  Tyler Spear and Hunter Stumpf represent their teams from Waukee High School’s Aspiring Professional Experiences Program (APEX) who have been working on creating energy content for teachers and students in AEA PD Online's Student Personalized Learning System.

The Waukee APEX (Aspiring Professional Experiences) Next Generation Energy team has collaborated with AEA PD Online and has been hard at work to deliver an informative Hydroelectric Energy Module to share with teachers and students. In this module you will find information that includes detailed descriptions of the basics of hydropower and how to harness it. The module also touches on the requirements for a dam, how the dam is constructed and more.

The Next Generation Energy class of Waukee High School’s Aspiring Professional Experiences Program (APEX) has also produced a Nuclear Energy Module for you to explore. It shares information to students on benefits and downfalls of nuclear energy, components of a reactor, and how nuclear energy is converted to a useful form in electricity which is used to power the community.

If you are interested in exploring these areas of learning go to to learn more. These module are available for teachers to assign to students in the Student Personalized Learning System and is found in the category of Science.

AEA PD Online thanks Tyler Spear, Hunter Stumpf, Tyler Groathouse, Jackson Slagter, Noah Jacobson, Eli Wright, Claudia Kern  and their teacher Tyler Wright for their hard work on these modules.

** Coming soon from students in the APEX program will be a variety of careers in energy.  Look for this by the beginning of the new year.  If you have students interested in creating content for Iowa teachers and students please contact Denise Krefting or Melissa Wicklund.
