Imagine the same sun that heats and lights the earth can be used to produce electricity and energy. For many centuries, solar energy has been used to heat or cool structures, and in recent years, generate electricity. Students can learn how to generate and use solar energy with this lab.
This start-up package includes KELVIN's Solar Racer which allow students to see for themselves how sunlight is transformed into energy. Hands-on activities include constructing and studying a Solar Model House and completing solar experiments. Grades 7-12. No computer required.
