Energy Modules Added to the Student Personalized Learning System

Today we have student guest bloggers.  Alex Zarkowski, Jack Sieleman and Dakotah Herr 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 Learning Online's Student Personalized Learning System. AEA Learning Online thanks leads Alex Zarkowski, Jack Sieleman and Dakotah Herr,  their teams and their teacher Tyler Wright for their hard work on these modules.

The Next Generation Energy class of Waukee APEX (Aspiring Professional Experience) is proud to share with you the work we have done on energy placed in the Student Personalized Learning System.  Our group has created content that educates students about the following types of energy.
Students can now check out modules
  • Nuclear Fusion: The sun is the ultimate producer of energy, creating so much that it makes Earth’s production of energy look miniscule. How does it do this? But more importantly, can we somehow replicate it on Earth to help our energy crisis? In this module, you will learn about the Process of Fusion, the development of machines such as a Tokamak and the Large Hadron Collider, and of a project called ITER that will be the bases for understanding the power of Nuclear Fusion along with harnessing it on Earth.
  • Energy Storage: As our society continues to progress into the silicon age, the demand for energy is increasing exponentially. As engineers worldwide develop and improve renewable and alternative energy production methods, dependence on a constant source of energy is becoming evermore crucial to avoiding chaos. In this module, you will learn about the technology of how energy is stored, as well as discuss a variety of different applications and options for energy storage.
  • Consumer Level Alternative Energy: Have you ever considered how much it costs for your everyday appliances to run? What about the fossil fuels that are emitted? In this module you will learn about about two of the main consumer level alternative energies, wind and solar. You will also gain an understanding of tax incentives and return on investment through web based learning and different interactives within this module. Consumers are an essential part of the ever changing alternative energy movement.
