Investigating Solar Energy
Grades 5-7) Explore the power of the sun!
Students will experiment with the solar heat
collection process using black and white cans with
thermometers to see the effect of different surfaces
when collecting heat from the sun. After this activity,
students can use an active solar panel and a solar motor
with accessories to visualize and develop ideas on
solar energy technology.
