Solar Energy Education Packet for Elementary & Secondary Students.
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 introduced at this point. Solar's creative side is included with six art-oriented selections. Then, to insure that there is participation by all age groups, a few simpler solar exercises are included to illustrate solar power at work. For those interested in further solar energy study, a bibliography is given at the end. (Author/MR)
