The Get Current coloring book engages preschool and kindergarten children with energy. The coloring book introduces renewable energy sources and takes the student through solar, wind, water, hydropower, bioenergy, and geothermal before demonstrating ways to improve energy efficiency, like plug-...
The Get Current activity book engages middle and high school students with energy. It includes crosswords, word games, math puzzles, and more challenging ways to help students learn, understand, and internalize the principles of energy literacy, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.
Windmills have been used for hundreds of years to collect energy from the wind. They have been used to pump water, to grind grain, and -- more recently -- to generate electricity. In some modern wind generators, the blades are very thin. But there are many possible designs, and engineers are...
The strongest and most consistent winds are found in the jet stream as high as 30,000 feet above the earth. In this video from QUEST produced by KQED, learn about the benefits and challenges of wind energy and the similarities and differences between conventional and airborne wind turbines.
Using this lesson plan as a guide, students will use simple materials to build their own windmills and learn how wind can be used to help get work done. Students review the engineering design process and discuss how wind can be used in a variety of ways. They look at many types of windmills,...
The outward extent of wind moving around a hurricane is rarely uniform. The size of this wind firld is often skewed to the right side of the storm's forward progress. At the same time, the size of each tropical cyclone varies. One hurricane, while it may not be very powerful, could have a large...
