Sustainable Living in the 21st Century. Human civilization’s energy consumption is growing. At the same time, the harmful environmental impact of our energy usage is becoming apparent. A massive global effort to adopt renewable energy and use our resources more sustainably has begun. To live sustainably, we must use Earth’s resources at a rate at which they can be replenished, and thus provide for future generations to live as we have.

With this kit, you can learn about alternative energy and sustainable living by conducting 100 experiments and building energy-related models. Build the Power House and then conduct experiments in and around the house. Learn about energy-efficient construction materials and passive house design. Experiment with heating, cooling, conduction, convection, and insulation. Investigate Earth’s climate, the water cycle, and that inexhaustible power plant in the sky: the sun. Test passive solar collection methods with a solar collector. Hook up a photovoltaic solar panel to generate electricity from sunlight. Build wind turbines to extract energy from the wind. Construct a greenhouse and learn about the energy conservation tricks used by plants. Power House provides a comprehensive overview of the many forms of alternative energy, and makes environmental protection and energy conservation issues tangible with hands-on models.

Demonstrates the sun's energy. When in sunlight or artificial light, the vanes rotate at a high rate of speed. When in darkness the vanes cease movement altogether, showing the simple principle of energy from the sun can be converted into motor energy. This device gives your students the benefit of seeing the bombardment of molecules within a near vacuum. Comes with complete sheet cataloging known and unknown factors about energy. Our Radiometer is made from a glass bulb from which much of the air has been removed. Inside the bulb, on a low-friction spindle, is a rotor with 4 vanes. Each vane has one blackened side and one silvered side; one black vane features a white dot in order to count rotations easily.
