Investigating Solar Energy
This book contains nine hands-on experiments and two culminating engineering projects that allow elementary students to learn about solar energy and develop solutions to real-world problems.
$33.00 – $40.00
In Investigating Solar Energy, students explore solar energy, energy transfer, series and parallel circuits, and variables that affect solar panel output using the Investigating Solar Energy Go Direct® Package, which includes the KidWind Solar Energy Exploration Kit, an energy sensor, the Vernier Resister Board, and a surface temperature sensor.
If you are using this curriculum as part of a STEM-specific program, you will find that the experiments and projects consistently integrate elementary mathematics skills and concepts.
The book is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS); each teacher section contains information to help you identify experiments that will help your students as they work toward meeting the NGSS Performance Expectations.
