Alternative Energy Field Experience

Wind, biomass and nuclear.  These are the ingredients we will learn more about on our 2-day/overnight trip.  We will visit the Shanghai Landfill (the world’s largest) and a nuclear power plant (travel by train for hours and stay overnight) to Sanmen, China.

This experience encourages education in the fields of science, math and technology. The goal of this project is  to  develop researching and fact-finding skills. In addition to understanding various forms of energy we use today, you will see ‘how’ these alternative energies are used in Shanghai.

Cost:  Approximately 1000RMB
