Product Description

In this illustrated, hands-on course, the student learns about what energy is, how it comes from the sun, and how it can go from burning wood (fire) to steam heat in a radiator to heat in a building.

The student does many simple activities that give him a first-hand understanding of the ideas he is learning about, such as going outside and feeling the energy from the sun and wind, watching water in a pan boil and evaporate, and feeling the heat of a car radiator.

Materials You Need to Supply:  Access to a boiler and steam radiator, a stove or hotplate and other common items such as a saucepan for boiling water.
