Features Data Collection Interface! Introduce students to active solar hot water and heat production used in homes worldwide and how to create a sustainable source of energy. A series of activities focus on heat transfer, heat absorption, insulation, solar geometry and solar heat collector mechanics. Students then apply this information in the design of a solar hot water and space heater. A data interface and sensors are used to gather data during activities as well as display the data in graph and chart form.
Includes: data collection interface (with windows software, sensors, USB cable, and interactions), adjustable solar collector, pump, lamp (light source) and stand, supplies (like absorption materials, insulation materials, tubing, tubing clamps, digital thermometer, angle finder, measuring containers and more), instruction booklet and design portfolio.
