In this fun lab-based class we will learn all about Solar Energy: What is solar energy? How does solar energy work? Why are renewable energies, and specifically solar energy, important? And how are scientists and engineers using solar energy to advance science? During the class, students will participate in a lab and get to MAKE their own solar ovens! Materials needed are listed below for the solar oven. Students may want to make a s'more, or some other easily meltable treat. Chocolate,...
I have been teaching hands-on science classes for many years, and I am a science enthusiast. I utilize solar energy at both my work and my home, as well as other renewable energies.
Students will receive lab instructions for the in-class lab. Students will need to provide the following materials What You Need: A treat to heat up. S'mores are traditional but chocolate, shredded cheese on nachos, bread with butter to toast, all work fine. *Cardboard pizza box (the kind delivered pizza comes in) other boxes of similar size can work, contact the teacher if you have questions! *Box knife or scissors *Aluminum foil *Clear tape *Plastic wrap (a heavy-duty or freezer zip lock bag will also work) *Black construction paper (black paint works but then it needs to dry so the project will not be completed during the class) *Newspapers or other used paper *Pen or marker *Ruler, wooden spoon or stick of similar size *Thermometer (optional)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will need to use a knife or scissors during the lab. If they struggle with cutting please be prepared to assist during the lab, or if you would like to prepare that piece ahead of time let me know and I'll send instructions.
