Hydropower is a form of generating electricity that has changed the world. We will be taking a look at where this started and how it has changed through human ingenuity. Also how has Hydropower taken on such a big role in the world? We plan to go over the inner workings of the plants including its turbines, power transformation process and the damns that are used to do this. Although Hydropower may be clean and renewable it does have its draw backs like all power plants. The world is looking to improve this clean energy source by making it more efficient and friendly to local ecosystems.
Theta Tau is a Professional Engineering Fraterity that regularly engages in outreach programs designed to increase awareness and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Our target audiences range from young children in pre-school to the entire community. One of our main goals is to debunk common misconceptions, and educate people about certain technologies and practices that have an unwarranted reputation in public opinion. Our mission with this booth is to both highlight the advantages of hydropower and also point out its limitations and environmental impact.
