GEO 137 - Global Energy Resources


This course is everyday science for the non-science student. Humans consume energy all day long. From gasoline in our cars to electricity in our microwaves and natural gas for our heat, we consume more and more each year. In this course, we will take a look at the simple science of electricity, the chemistry of biofuels, the “magic” behind manufacturing solar panels, the basic science of your car engine and the scientific concepts of harnessing hydrogen power, wind power, solar power, hydro-electric power, geothermal power and others for our everyday needs. We will also research the formation of fossil fuels and the basics of fuel combustion. This course is designed as a lab science course for non-science majors.
