Teams of electrical engineers work together to develop plans for increasing electricity to a fictitious, but growing community. They consider different sources of electricity, both renewable and nonrenewable, the cost of building and using them, and the environmental impact. They present their plans to the rest of the class during a community forum and then vote on the most economical and ecologically sound design. This is a terrific role-play activity to use as a wrap-up to an energy unit.
