Amazing Solar Science Activities

PUB1709

Limited Supply.

1997. Michael Daley. This is more than an activity book; it's a practical, hands-on introduction to the concept of renewable energy, emphasizing the limitations of fossil fuel as compared with the limitless availability of light from the sun. Using recycled and recyclable materials and an energy source that's free for the taking, students can create a pizza-box oven that cooks tacos and pizza, a deli-container greenhouse to grow plants, a working solar water heater out of a soda can, black paint, and a thermometer, and much more. Each chapter contains a number of "Sun Fun" and fast food facts, ideas for going further, and a "Lab Notebook' section for recording experimental results. 112 pages, soft cover, b&w illustrations. Ages 8-14.
