Activity: A Current Affair by The NEED Project

This activity (pdf) for middle and high school students from the NEED Project asks students to assume the role of television news correspondents and report on seven aspects of electric power generation including:

  • the history of electricity
  • generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity
  • demand-side management
  • base-load and peak-load electrical generation
  • energy loss
  • independent power plants and co-generating plants
  • the future of electrical generation

The following sections from NEED’s Energy Infobooks will also be useful:
