Explore how motion, heat, electricity and chemical reactions can be understood through energy concepts such as energy transfer and conversion and potential and kinetic energy.

Teachers will:

  • Learn, explore and implement hands-on and inquiry-based teaching techniques.
  • Explore different types of energy including mechanical, electrical, thermal, sound and light.
  • Build an understanding of energy by making connections between the various types of energy.
  • Understand that energy is neither created nor destroyed.
  • Learn that most energy can be divided into either kinetic or potential energy.

Sample schedule:

Session 1: Introduction to course, foundations of energy
Session 2: Mechanical energy
Session 3: Thermal energy
Session 4: Electrical energy
Session 5: Chemical energy
Session 6: Applications of energy

This course is next offered in summer 2019.
