This learning module is provided by Work-Ready Electronics and covers alternative energy sources. Work-Ready Electronics modules are intended to be used either independently or integrated with current electronics curricula in college programs. This module is divided into three sections: Content, Knowledge Probes, and Learning Activities.

The Content section includes three PDF documents that cover the following topics: fuel cells, solar power, and ultracapacitors. 

Three Knowledge Probes are included in this learning module. The Knowledge probes include learning objectives and a short quiz. Each Knowledge Probe corresponds to a topic covered in the Content section. 

The Learning Activities section includes the Portable Power Technology drill-down report, Supercapacitor lab, and performance assessment. The 7-page performance assessment includes 50 questions. 

The Research section includes print and web references.

For orientation purposes Fuel Cells.pdf is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this collection. 

Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
