Our school-age kids will be tomorrow's engineers, experimenting with and creating breakthroughs in renewable energy. Energy Lab for Kids is written for them! This book offers challenging experiments and guided discussions by a noted teacher and kids' science author. In addition, ...each chapter contains how-tos, discoveries, and pointers from prize-winning kids who've already begun looking for energy solutions through science fairs and Youtube. Energy Lab for Kids is more than just a random collection of fun science experiments that kids can do in the classroom, kitchen, or backyard. There is a goal in mind--to explore and discover real energy solutions. The chapters cross all categories--from steam, electricity, and chemical reactions, to water, solar, and wind power. The experiments build from one chapter to the next, allowing kids to compare and test out the different sources and to discover their strengths and failings: Why one source of energy is more efficient for a particular purpose than other. Why two energy sources combined might work better than a single source, and how to make the two compatible. In addition, the projects will be geared to understanding actual issues in the news today, such as using solar energy to desalinate water or solving the problem of storing wind power for future use. Throughout there will be an emphasis on fun, inventive exploration with the added reward of discovering that creativity leads to breakthroughs.
