What's Included

Electricity makes the world go ’round, but what do you really know about it? Alternating Current got its start right here in this region over 120 years ago, and the original Pinhead Institute gathered scientists and engineers here in Telluride to research the new technology! Through a combination of lectures and hands on projects like generator design, solar arrays and storage design, and building a hydrogen generator with electrolysis, students 7th through 12th grades will gain a fundamental understanding of this invisible yet awesome force. Topics include: Energy and Civilization, History of Electricity, Fundamentals of Energy Physics and Electromagnetism, Electrical Engineering 101, and Alternative Energy and the Future.
