Project: Electricity Generation

This project will be about how Humans create Electricity. It will include info on:
Potential (how batteries and solar cells work)
Alternating current and generators
and how its done on a large scale; steam cycles, turbines, boilers, condensers, etc...

I've already made a start on some of the pages and I'm aiming to get most of it done before I go home for Christmas (14th Dec). If it works out I'd like to move on to different sorts of power stations next term.

Hi Ema,

Great idea for a project - we have nothing on this so far. smiley - smiley

You could, if you want, take a little longer and include the material about power stations - it's all related. Lots of people are going to be taking a bit of a break over Christmas, so don't worry too much about deadlines here. smiley - cheers
