Tesla Town teaches students about electricity system From nuclear power plants to solar powered homes, TCIPG’s free new iPad app, Tesla Town, allows young students to explore and learn about different energy sources used for electricity production today. “Most people don’t have a lot of information about where electricity comes from,” said Jana Sebestik, Assistant Director of STEM Curriculum Design for the Office for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) and co-creator of the app. “One of our goals is just to educate people about the various sources.” The Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG), a multi-university center administered by Illinois' Information Trust Institute, worked with Sebestik and MSTE to create this interactive application. The app includes realistic, interactive illustrations of how electricity is produced, such as burning coal to create steam or controlling water flow through a dam. “People see these structures in our cities, but they might not know what they are,” Sebestik said.
