About this item

Humankind needs to rethink how it uses energy more than ever. Energy Lab for Kids prepares young minds for future challenged by giving them the groundwork they'll need.

Energy Lab for Kids offers 40 discovery-filled and thought-provoking energy projects by Emily Hawbaker, a science educator from the NEED (National Energy Education Development) project. Each chapter contains scientific explanations, discoveries, and hands-on knowledge that make learning fun.

Energy Lab for Kids is more than just a random collection of science experiments that kids can do in the classroom, kitchen, or backyard. The goal: to explore and discover real energy solutions. The chapters cross all categories--from steam, electricity, and chemical reactions, to water, solar, and wind power, allowing kids to compare and test the different sources and to discover their strengths and failings. Why is one source of energy is more efficient for a one situation but not for another? How come two energy sources combined might work better than a single source? Which sources are renewable?

Additionally, the projects are geared to understanding actual issues in the news today. There is an emphasis on inventive exploration throughout the books, so that kids may learn the reward of discovering that creativity leads to breakthroughs.
