In this activity, learners explore nonrenewable resources and learn why these resources are finite.
Solar Water Heater
Learners work in teams to design and build solar water heating devices that mimic those used in residences to capture energy in the form of solar radiation and convert it to thermal energy.
Waves: An Alternative Energy Source
In this data analysis and environmental science activity, learners evaluate the feasibility of wave energy as a practical alternative energy source using ocean observing system (OOS) buoys.
In this physics activity (page 8-9 of the PDF), learners will explore wind energy. They will build their own windmill and see how energy from wind can be converted into a useable form.
In this activity, learners make a small batch of biodiesel that will work in any diesel engine. Learners use an old juice bottle as a "reactor" vessel to chemically process vegetable oil into fuel.
