Green Essentials Edition
To live sustain ably, 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. In this kit, you can learn about alternative energy and
sustainable living by conducting experiments and building energy-related
models. Thirty of the best experiments and the ten most important building
projects from the original Power House kit are presented in this new Green
The ten building projects include: the power house itself, a greenhouse, a
solar cell array, a passive solar collector, a solar oven, an air
conditioner, a refrigerator, a hydrometer, a lemon battery, and a wind power
Experiment with the heating, cooling, and insulation of the house and
greenhouse. Test passive solar collection methods with a solar collector.
Assemble a solar power array to explore active solar power with
photovoltaic. Build a model refrigerator and air conditioner to learn about
heat transfer. Experiment with a lemon battery to learn about power storage.
Set up a wind turbine to generate electricity from the wind.
As you perform the experiments, you will read the diary entries of a group
of young explorers who are learning to live a sustainable existence on an
island. To survive, they must implement real-world versions of the projects
you are doing in the kit. Ages 10 and up.
