Powering the Future

Become an expert in the past, present, and future of energy production and consumption

Explore the science and engineering behind sustainable energy

How is energy generated today? More importantly, how will the future be powered? Students tackle these questions and more in Powering the Future. After gaining a detailed understanding of the mechanics of traditional, non-renewable and renewable energy sources, students apply their knowledge to a range of policy and engineering problems individually and collaboratively. In the process, today’s high school students gain the insight to become tomorrow’s leaders, shaping how society sources and consumes valuable energy resources.

Examine the intersection of energy, environment, and economics

Powering the Future addresses some of the most pressing environmental concerns of today and tomorrow. Through an interdisciplinary lens, students explore concepts including:

  • Humans’ relationship with energy in the past, present and future
  • Benefits and drawbacks of a wide range of sustainable energy sources
  • Analysis of students’ local sources of energy
  • How to balance economics, environmentalism, and efficiency in the context of sustainable energy

Turn knowledge into action with online and in-person learning

Knovva courses leverage the pedagogy of blended learning, combining online and in-person experiences. Students can engage with content independently on their devices and connect with learners around the world on our online platform. They can then dive further into course content with collaborative, project-based, teacher-guided classroom lessons.

Powering the Future is conducted over 14 lessons, with 12 modules of content and two modules where students work on final project preparation and presentation. The final project ties together all of the themes explored in the course as well as students’ own experiences working with their global community online.
