Solar Water Heater Systems for Building Trades Class.
Ryan, Milton; And Others
This teaching unit serves as a guide for the installation of active solar water heating systems. It contains a project designed for use with secondary level students of a building trades class. Students typically would meet 2 to 3 hours per day and would be able to complete the activity within a 1-week time period. Objectives of this unit include: (1) analysis of direct solar energy; (2) assessment of the benefits and disadvantages of solar energy use; (3) on-site examinations of solar water heater systems; and (4) hands-on installation of solar heating systems. Experiments which develop basic principles of solar energy are outlined for student investigation. Suggested strategies, materials, procedures and background information are provided for each exercise. The unit also contains several illustrations that indicate the materials and procedures that are needed for installation of a solar heating system. Additional resource materials are listed and a bibliography is included. (ML)
