The need for alternative energies has never been more apparent than now. Get students thinking about energy concepts through this hands-on activity. The Getting Started Package has enough materials for 30 student wind generators, a WinDynamo III for teacher demonstrations or advanced student explorations, and the Eco-Wind Gen video.
Wind energy is a growing form of energy in our world. With the Eco-Wind Generator Maker Project, students learn about wind energy and can construct their very own wind generator. The project includes an Eco-Wind Generator II 30-Pack; Eco-Wind Gen video; and three 3-speed, high-velocity fans. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Solar energy has many applications in our world. In the Solar Oven Maker Project, students learn to use solar energy to create a solar oven. The project includes the Solar Oven 30-Pack. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
The need for alternative energies has never been more apparent than now. Get students thinking about wind energy concepts through this hands-on activity. The Getting Started package has enough materials for 25 student wind generators and has a WinDynamo III for teacher demonstrations or advanced student explorations.
Using both the WinDynamo II and Wind Gen Kits (or Eco-Wind Generator Kits), this guide provides a close-up look at wind energy. It details hands-on activities to teach students how to measure wind speed, calculate rpm, determine optimum pitch angles, create a wind farm producing a specified voltage, and more.
The Wind Energy Teacher’s Guide contains ITEEA, NCTM, NSTA, and NCTE standards addressed; teacher and student instructions for a variety of math, science, and technology activities; pretests and posttests; resource pages; and puzzles. Contains separate activities for middle school and high school students.
Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Pitsco Wind Energy – Getting Started Package, wind meter, electric fan, anemometer, ruler or tape measure, digital multimeter, electronic or triple beam balance, wire cutters, wire strippers, card stock, balsa sheets, balsa sticks, hole punch, glue or glue stick, and standard classroom tools and materials. Note: This list is for all activities; individual activities don’t require all listed materials.
Finally, a down-to-earth guide to help people incorporate renewable energy sources into the everyday home. Learn how solar and wind energy can reduce or eliminate dependence on the grid – and how modern technology has made these sources cheaper and more attractive than they were decades ago.
Got Sun? Go Solar covers the advantages of renewable energy, regulations, choosing a system that fits your home, financial assistance available, and more.
