UL Xplorlabs, Portable Electrical Power Website
Portable Electrical Power is a virtual module with supporting classroom investigations about the phenomenon of thermal runaway in lithium-ion batteries using the example of hoverboards. This module is a collection of videos, virtual interactions, experiments and demonstrations, and challenges and supports NGSS in physical science for middle school. The PEP module can be done as a class from start to finish or in pieces between home and school. This module can be used to support content understanding in energy and/or to demonstrate the NGSS science and engineering practices applied to a real-world issue.
