Wave Attenuator Lesson 2: Building a Tidal Wave Attenuator
1. Students will describe and model the energy transfer and transformation in a wave attenuator.
2. Students will build a wave attenuator using a diagram and selected materials.
3. Students will test the model wave attenuator they built.
This lesson is designed to build upon investigations of electromagnetic energy by applying these phenomena to transfer the kinetic energy moving in waves to electricity by building a wave attenuator.
