Renewable Energy with Vernier

The Renewable Energy with Vernier lab book features 26 experiments in wind and solar energy. The book contains a combination of explorations, traditional experiments, inquiry investigations, engineering projects, and more.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,



In Renewable Energy with Vernier, students learn about renewable energy, experiment with variables affecting power output from model wind turbines and solar panels, and engage in engineering projects such as building a wind farm or a solar charger to meet certain design criteria.

Aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), all of the experiments are designed to support students in three-dimensional learning. Disciplinary Core Ideas, Science and Engineering Practices, and Crosscutting Concepts are identified for each experiment within the Instructor pages.

Many of the experiments use the Go Direct® Energy Sensor and the Vernier Variable Load, two products that were designed to measure the power and energy output of renewable energy sources. The experiments also use the KidWind Advanced Wind Experiment KitsKidWind 2V solar panels, KidWind SimpleGEN, Go Direct Voltage, and Solar Thermal Exploration Kit.
