The 16th annual Texas Energy Summit, an education conference and business expo, will be taking place from November 12-14. This year, the 2019 Texas Energy Summit will be hosted by the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) which is a division of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Stations (TEES). During the Texas Energy Summit, session such as “Electrifying Transportation” and “Electric Buses” will be taking place to initiate conversations and informational discussions about the future of transportation.
Transportation is important and impacts the lives of many students. Our Modeling Public Transportation activity is an opportunity for students to identify the capacity of different modes of transportation. This activity takes a problem-solving approach to move individuals from one place to another. In addition, if students are beginning to explore algebraic representation, there is an opportunity to extend the procedure of this activity into mathematical expressions. Visit our website for more information about this activity and others and join us in educating students about transportation and it’s future.
