Solar Energy Science Projects
Here are two great Solar Energy Science Projects that you should try.
The first one is much simpler, and would be great to do as a Middle School Science Fair Project or with a group of Middle Schoolers.
The second involves building and installing your own solar panel (or windmill). It would be a great project for an industrious High Schooler, or for a Project Based Learning Activity with High School, or even College, students.
Hot Water and Warm Homes
This great Teachers Guide is available at Amazon.com.
The guide focuses on designing well controlled experiments. The first experiment involves building a model house, and determining the best way to heat it with the sun. The second investigates how best to heat hot water.
Home Made Energy:
Journeyman Electrician Bill Ford designed this program for the home hobbyist who wants to save money by building his or her own solar power panels and/or windmill. It would be perfect for a science fair or as a group project.
After watching the videos and reading through the manual, you should be able to build and install a solar panel or windmill in just one weekend.
I strongly urge you to check this out.
