Quarry Hill Nature Center, Rochester, Minn.; Minnesota Regional Environmental Education Council, Minneapolis.
Ten learning stations containing displays and student activities relating to energy comprise the seminar described in this booklet. On a data sheet, each student answered questions based upon information obtained at the learning stations. The guide contains instructions for constructing each exhibit, including a materials list, estimated cost, and a photograph of the completed station. Also provided are an energy quiz and sample student data sheet. Although the seminar was designed for junior high school participants, it has been used successfully with students in fifth grade through senior high. Among the topics investigated are insulation types, thermostat setting, chemically-produced electricity, energy efficiency, and electricity from mechanical energy. (WB)
