Solar Energy Education Packet for Elementary & Secondary Students. Revised Edition.
Center for Renewable Resources, Washington, DC.
The arrangement of this packet is essentially evolutionary, with a conscious effort to alternate reading assignments, activities and experiments. It begins with solar energy facts and terminology as background to introduce the reader to basic concepts. It progresses into a discussion of passive solar systems. This is followed by several projects about active solar systems, basically aimed at high school students. Energy conservation is also introduced. For those interested in further solar energy study, a bibliography is given at the end. (Author/MR)
