Solar StructuresAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore how the power of the sun can be harnessed to heat and cool a building.
Working with Wind EnergyAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore how wind energy can be generated on both a large and small scale.
Cook Food Using the Sun
Learners build a solar oven from a cardboard pizza box, aluminum foil and plastic. Learners can use their oven to cook S'mores or other food in the sun.
In this activity related to climate change, learners examine albedo and the ice albedo feedback effect as it relates to snow, ice, and the likely results of reduced snow and ice cover on global temper
Build Your Own Solar Oven
Learners follow directions to construct a solar oven that really cooks! The solar oven uses aluminum foil to reflect sunlight into a cooking chamber, which is painted black.
Feel the Heat
In this design challenge activity, learners design and build a solar hot water heater. Their goal is to create a heater that yields the highest temperature change.
Can Energy be Created or Destroyed?
In this activity, learners explore conservation of energy by experimenting with a solar cell light device.
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.
Rain Machine (Solar Still)Add to list Details
In this activity, learners work in groups to build simple solar stills filled with salt water. After the stills are complete, learners observe what happens when they place the stills in the sun.
Solar Cell SimulationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners model the flow of energy from the sun as it enters a photovoltaic cell, moves along a wire and powers a load.
In this activity, learners investigate passive solar building design with a focus solely on heating.
Stabilization Wedges Game
This game introduces learners to the scale of the greenhouse gas problem, plus technologies that already exist to dramatically reduce our carbon emissions and prevent climate change.
Reflective Solar Cooker
In this activity, learners use the Sun's energy to cook marshmallows. Learners construct the solar oven out of simple everyday materials.
Make a Water Cycle Wristband
In this activity, learners thread colored beads onto string. Each beach represent a process of the water cycle.
