Experiment with and explore alternative energy
Using this project kit, you will explore how best to use Earth's resources and use renewable energy.
- the heating, cooling, and insulation of the house and greenhouse
- test passive solar collection methods with a solar collector
- assemble a solar power array to explore active solar power with photovoltaics
- build a model refrigerator and air conditioner to learn about heat transfer
- experiment with a lemon battery to learn about power storage
- and much more.
As you perform the experiments, you will read the diary entries of a group of young explorers who are learning to live a sustainable existence on an island. To survive, they must implement real-world versions of the projects you are doing in the kit.
Includes a 64 page manual with instructions for 30 experiments and 10 building projects.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
