From Greenlearning.ca and The Pembina Foundation…
(from our inbox on August 27, 2010) – Thanks to funding from Green Street, we have redesigned the re-energy.ca website to make it more user-friendly for students and teachers alike.
At re-energy.ca, students of all ages find detailed construction plans to build working models of wind turbines, solar ovens, hydroelectric generators, and biogas generators. Students can also make use of related links as well as backgrounders in Renewable Energy Basics, Solar Heat, Solar Electricity, Wind Power, Water Power, Biomass Energy, and Other Clean Energy Technologies.
As students explore renewable energy hands-on, they
- enjoy the challenge of building working models
- discover the fundamental principles of biology, chemistry and physics
- see the application of science and technology to some of today’s most important environmental issues.
At www.greenlearning.ca, teachers can find supporting lesson plans, Solar Oven Challenge registration, and national curriculum connections for science, grades 6 to 12.
