City of Ember: Hydro Power
City of Ember: Hydro Power:
The city is dying. Power failures are common. There is no light in the sky. Outside the city in what
is called the Unknown Regions only darkness can be found. Campers in this program will follow
the mystery of Ember & learn about electric circuits. They will discover which materials are
conductors and insulators of electricity. Students will learn about water wheels and the scientific
forces behind pipelines, water reservoirs and fountains. Campers will construct Ember Keys, learn
calligraphy and play water sports. As a culminating project, campers will create hydro-power generators and construct a fully-lit Ember house.
