Electrical Production and Pollution Control. Environmental Education Curriculum.
Topeka Public Schools, KS.
Citizen use of our nation's industrial products has led to increased pollution problems and demand for diminishing energy reserves. In an attempt to encourage intelligent cooperation among science, industry, government and all citizens, this unit was developed to introduce secondary science students to the many facets of the electrical production industry. It focuses on one plant--the Lawrence Kansas Power and Light generating station--which provides examples of the machinery used to produce electricity and methods for controlling much of the resulting pollution. The module discusses uses of electricity, problems and solutions of pollution control, economics and the electrical industry, nuclear energy and energy shortages. A suggested time line is provided sequencing events leading to the trip to the plant. Also included are lists and descriptions of materials needed and suggestions of appropriate methdologies and guidelines for the field trip. Appendices include a glossary of terms and patterns for developing relating transparencies. (MLB)
