With re-energy.ca, science comes alive as students use detailed construction plans to build working models of solar ovens, wind turbines, hydroelectric generators, and biogas generators.
Students also make use of age-appropriate backgrounders in Renewable Energy Basics, Solar Heat, Solar Electricity, Wind Power, Water Power, Biomass Energy, and Other Clean Energy Technologies. They can further their research through related links.
re-energy.ca teachers are supported with lesson plans, national curriculum connections for grade 6 to 12 science, and an annual Solar Oven Challenge.
As students explore renewable energy hands-on, they
- 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
- meet learning outcomes in grade 6 to 12 science
- enjoy the challenge of building working models!
