Lesson plan: Is solar power the future of energy?

Have you ever felt that nervous feeling in the pit of your stomach when you notice your smartphone has only 1 percent battery power left? Now, compare it to that tranquil sigh of relief when you see it’s at 100 percent. Humans require a lot of energy to get through the day and depend largely on utility companies to provide that energy. But where do these companies get their energy from?

In this NewsHour lesson, students will learn how utility companies and individuals — faced with greater demand and the effects of climate change — are inventing newer, greener ways to get power. Students will then create their own electrical circuits using innovative structures designed to save energy.
