Energy Education
Steven B. Leeb, James L. Kirtley, Jr., Les K. Norford

We are developing exciting new laboratory subjects that address critical needs in our current undergraduate education: the opportunity for an exposure to energy conversion and energy related processes. We intend to focus on the basics of energy and power at the beginning stages of a student's education. "Hands-on" experimentation is a central aspect of the subjects we are offering, with a unique set of experiments and design and construction activities focused on understanding the operation of industrially, commercially, and scientifically important energy consuming devices and measurement apparatus.
