Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) Education provided support for science kits funded with a $2,000 grant from the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)-Chicago section. The science kits are housed in the Mahomet Public Library.
The science kits provide a hands-on learning experience for students, teachers and parents, who can create their very own power system. The kits include a model wind farm, Snap Circuits, electric motor investigations, electrostatic explorations, and hand-cranked generator activities. While they are be housed in Mahomet, the resources can be checked out by any of the 594 libraries that are part of the Illinois Heartland Library System.
