Synopsis by Alice Day
Learning how technology has changed the world is essential to an understanding of the modern age, and this series of ten programs gives young students a grasp of the concepts involved in these developments. As global energy resources are depleted, the search continues for more power possibilities. In Technology Starters: Water Power, students will examine how man has utilized water as a power source in the past, and the current uses for water turbines. Any use of an energy source must address the impact on the environment, and those effects are also discussed in this program.
