Renewable Energy Science Kit with DVD

Description

This kit contains 10 labs, DVD, and complete Teacher’s Guide. It is designed to be a comprehensive study of Alternative Energy Sources.

The kit is recommended for students 12+ years of age, but is not grade- or age-specific because it covers all of the important concepts generally taught over years in the old, spiraling school paradigm. In keeping with the new National Science Standards of effective teaching, this kit provides weeks of concentrated study. The teacher may elect to complete the 10 labs over a period of five weeks, at two labs per week, or ten weeks, at one lab per week. The teacher might also choose to add supplemental study through textbooks, library books, field trips and/or additional technology.

The lab station activities include producing electricity using photovoltaic cells, converting wind energy and demonstrating technologies used in synthetic fuels and solar energy. The combination of doing lab activities and viewing the concepts in the critically acclaimed videos (approximately 20 minutes in length) will result in a dynamically interactive learning experience. Your student(s) will appreciate the opportunity to reinforce the concepts they learned in the video when doing the activities featured in each lab (station).

The Teacher’s Guide provides a valuable resource containing sections on DVD goals, specific lab learning outcomes, teaching strategies and tips for success along with a day-by-day lesson plan. Copy masters are provided for the pre-/post test, lab instruction sheets and student answer sheets. A correlation of each unit to the National Science Standards is also provided. Labs have been designed to capitalize on a wide variety of learning styles. The metric system and mathematics are also emphasized.

These kits are designed to be a complete course of study that every teacher, from the inexperienced to the master teacher, will find invaluable in delivering engaging hands-on Science!
