Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 4 of 4 Classroom Resources
Renewable Energy, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, History, Polymers, Molecular Structure, Heat | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students will answer questions while watching a video about several exciting scientific developments, including solar cells, 3D printing and micro machines. This video will help students understand that fundamental chemistry concepts are essential to the advancement of science and technology.
Renewable Energy, Phase Changes, Photosynthesis | Middle School, Elementary School
In this lab, students will learn that even the smallest spaces can have their own climate. They will create a miniature sized terrarium and will observe how sunlight enters in order to warm the air, and in turn heat the soil and seeds. Condensation will build up in the container and the students can observe the water cycle in action, as well as the growth of the seeds over time.
Renewable Energy, Electricity, Galvanic Cells, Heat, Cathode, Anode | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video analyzes alternatives to petroleum based fossil fuels, such as biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells.
Renewable Energy, Pressure, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Volume | Middle School, High School
In this lab, students will experiment with creating and capturing biogas, and have an opportunity to look at how energy is created from waste. They will explore the differences between non-renewable and renewable energy sources.
