Description

A renewable energy device

Explore heating and "cooking" with sunlight using an easy to make mini solar collector. Use a pointer to align the cooker with the sun's position - then remove the pointer to let in the light.

Curriculum topics: Solar Heating, Radiant Energy, Apparent Motion of the Sun, Reflectivity

Kit includes: Idea Sheet,  10 blank CDs, 10 CDs clear, 10 clear CD inserts, 10 fasteners, 10 file folders, 10 paperclips, 10 mini binder clips, 10 small binder clips, 10 portion cups with lids, 10 clear straws, 10 straw stirrers, foil

Number served: 10  Don't need 10? Get a single

Grades: 3-12

Standards:

 

  • Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Earth and Space Science /// Earth and Human Activity)

  • Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. [Examples : electric circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar heater that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints: materials, cost, or design time.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Evaluate competing design solutions for developing, managing, & utilizing energy & mineral resources based on cost-benefit ratios. [Emphasis: on the conservation, recycling, & reuse of resources (such as minerals & metals) where possible, & on minimizing impacts where it is not.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Earth and Space Science /// Earth and Human Activity )

  • Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Earth and Space Science /// Earth and Human Activity )

  • Design, evaluate, & refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment & biodiversity.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Life Science /// Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics)

  • Design, build, & refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Physical Science /// Energy)

  • Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Earth and Space Science /// Earth and Human Activity)

  • Apply scientific principles to design, construct, & test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer. [Examples: an insulated box, a solar cooker, & a Styrofoam cup.]
