On July 11th, we went on a tour of the Shasta Dam. We were shown many intriguing things about the dam and the  history of it along with the surrounding area. The best part of the tour for me was seeing the water turbines that produce power for the dam through hydroelectricity. The dam runs its operations using the power produced from these turbines and it’s really awesome how efficient they are by using the water to their advantage. This was a very interesting trip and another good experience for our Korean exchange students.
