Provides a comprehensive overview of the many forms of alternative energy, and makes environmental protection and energy conservation issues tangible with hands-on models. Students can conduct 100 experiments as they build energy-related models. Experiments with heating, cooling, conduction, convection, and insulation of the house will allow students to learn about energy-efficient construction materials and passive house design. The solar collector can be used to test passive solar collection methods, and a photovoltaic solar panel can be hooked up to generate electricity from sunlight. Students will also build wind turbines to extract energy from the wind, and they will construct a greenhouse to learn about the energy conservation tricks used by plants. The 64-page, full-color experiment manual provides instructions, scientific explanations, and energy-saving tips. Ages 10 and up.
