This book contains nine hands-on experiments and two culminating engineering projects that allow elementary students to learn about solar energy and develop solutions to real-world problems.
Using the Vernier Energy Sensor (VES-BTA), and the Surface Temperature Sensor (STS-BTA), students explore solar energy, energy transfer, series and parallel circuits, and variables that affect solar panel output.
If you are using this curriculum as part of a STEM-specific program, you will find that the experiments and projects consistently integrate elementary mathematics skills and concepts. The book is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS); each teacher section contains information that will help you identify experiments that will help your students as they work toward meeting the NGSS Performance Expectations.
