Objective: To learn about alternative technologies while studying mechanical waves
Introduction: Watching the ocean, especially on a windy day, is very suggestive of its power. Typically humans have harnessed this power for recreation or sea travel but wave power is currently being investigated as a source of electrical power generation. The aim of this lesson is help students understand ocean waves and introduce them to the potential and challenges of harnessing wave energy.
