Next Energy Engineering Clean Energy Systems 1  638000CW: This course exposes students to three sources of renewable energy: wind, solar and biofuels. Working with solar, thermal, chemical and mechanical sources of clean energy teaches students how to apply physics, geography, chemistry, biology, geometry, algebra and engineering fundamentals. Students learn the most efficient and appropriate use of energy production as they explore the relevant relationships among work, power and energy. Students will engage in a wide variety of hands on projects and lab activities that both test their knowledge and illustrate the interrelationships between the various forms of clean energy. Credit: 1

Clean Energy Applications 2  638100HW- HONORS: This course builds on the foundation of Course 1 and introduces nuclear power, steam generation, fuel cells, geothermal power, water power, AC/DC power generation, heat transfer and the laws of thermodynamics. In addition, students now use chemical and thermal energy principles to create, store and use energy efficiently to power a variety of mechanical and electrical devices. Students will engage in a variety of hands-on design projects to demonstrate principles using advanced technology hardware and software. Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Successful completion of course 1 or permission of R2i2 instructor

Clean Energy Strategies 638200CW: Students in this course utilize applicable skills from the foundational courses to tackle challenges associated with the implementation of clean energy technology. The hands-on projects encountered during this course will require students to address specific issues related to providing portable power in any situation, developing new energy storage systems, increasing the efficiency of the modern home, and designing more energy efficient buildings and homes. Prerequisite: Must have completed Sections One and Two Successfully Credit: 1
