Introduction to Green Technology

Introduction to Green Technology is an introductory science course that prepares students for further learning in the emerging engineering fields of green technologies, environmental technology, and renewable energy forms. The main focus of the course is on physics, physical science, and environmental science, and includes a strong laboratory component. Students in this course will analyze various energy forms, including forces, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, kinetic energy, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and electromagnetism. They will conduct hands-on experiments to aid and increase their understanding of the concepts they have learned.

This course is a project-based laboratory course in physics that prepares students for careers in the emerging field of green technologies, environmental sciences, and alternative energy. It promotes rigorous classroom instruction and laboratory experiments that require real-world problem solving, critical thinking, and an understanding of the theory and principles of physical sciences.
