Where Electricity Comes From
"Energy for society" should be an important part of any introductory Earth Science course. Students should understand what our energy sources are,as well as how they are formed, used, and distributed. They should have a basic knowledge of how society produces the energy used for transportation, heating, and electricity. This week's "resource of the week" will help promote an understanding of electricity. CLICK HERE to see an interactive web page provided by National Public Radio. Select "Sources of Power", "Power Plants", "Solar Energy", or "Wind Energy" to show different aspects of electricity. Move your cursor over the states to bring up interesting details.
