Most of us don’t give a second thought of how water arrives to your kitchen faucet or the garden hose.  Learn how water is pumped from the reservoir to your home or irrigation sprinkler.  How your engine oil is pumped from the crank case to the cam shaft.  This course provides an opportunity to learn about pumps; how kinetic energy or a change in displacement is converted into pressure in order to cause flow.  Students will have an opportunity to wet their hands with actual pumps.  This course will be a fun learning opportunity to learn about fluid mechanics.  Concepts that will benefit the irrigator or enhance your STEM expertise.
