Student Teacher

Description

Overview:
Students will examine and understand the potential of online collective fundraising (e.g. Kickstarter, GoFundMe, IdieGoGo) and it’s potential impact on alternative sources of energy (Gravity, Electricity, Wind Energy). The example that I will show them is called the Gravity Light. It uses the principle of conservation of energy to convert gravitational potential energy into kinetic energy and then into electrical energy. Students will then do some research on Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and/or GoFundMe to find an alternative source of energy that is in development and awaiting funding.
Students will look at areas including potential impact to the environment, potential impact to the economy, barriers to success, alternative ideas that they have thought of because of doing this research, amount of money that can be made from this project, etc.
