Fizzics Education: Renewable Energy

We will investigate various renewable energy sources and compare them against non-renewable energy sources. A focus will be placed upon how a generator actually works and how this is applied in coal power stations, wind farms, hydroelectric dams, tidal generators, etc. We’ll also discuss why switching to renewable energy sources will help reduce carbon emissions, with reference being made to the scientific basis of climate change.

9:30 – 10:30am

11:30 – 12:30pm
