Save the Snails challenges students to engage with energy literacy, and the understanding of where electricity we use in our daily lives comes from. The power plants that dot our landscape are black boxes to so many. Something like coal or water or uranium or natural gas goes in, and magically, electricity comes out. Black boxes can be dangerous items in science and technology if the privilege that comes with understanding the workings inside the box is held by only a few. In this curriculum, students design and build a light that runs on gravity alone. They learn about electromagnetic induction, what happens inside power plants, and how they can build their own electricity generator.
