  • Hydropower has been used for hundreds of years in watermills and is now commonly used to generate electricity in applications such as hydroelectric dams and tidal power plants
  • Explore the power of water by building models and conducting experiments with them
  • Learn about how different devices are used to extract useful energy from moving water… from a waterwheel in a small stream to a giant turbine in a tidal power station
  • Build a waterwheel, a sawmill, and a hammer mill to harness the energy of moving water to do different types of physical work
  • Investigate the intriguing properties of water by performing experiments involving surface tension, adhesion, and cohesion
  • Learn about water pressure by building a water tower, communicating vessels, and a water fountain
  • Construct a hydroelectric power station to generate electricity and light an LED
  • Learn about where the energy in ocean waves, tides, and rivers comes from, and discover how we can generate electricity from them
