Solar Heating Lab Activity
Educational Classroom Kits and Activities
Working Solar Collector That Students Construct and Monitor.
- Linked to a real world scenario
- Allows direct observation of water circulation
- Includes a teacher's guide
A basic, economical introduction to solar energy, this activity allows students to observe the simple gravity system used to circulate water and test the effects of different variables on the collector’s efficiency. As they do this, they will learn about the commercial applications of solar energy and even determine whether solar heating would be a viable option for their own homes. It includes a teacher’s guide.
