Glencoe Science Level Red
Interactions of Matter
Mini models of energy devices
Project Type: Technology
Research the following types of energy resources; windmills, wave and water mills, solar panels, dams, geothermal stations, and composting gas for energy.
Explain how each type of energy resource works, saves energy resources, money, and the environment in a report that is six pages; one page per energy resource.
Groups of students will be assigned one of the following types of energy resources to make a model of.
These groups of students will then explain how their model works, saves energy resources, money, and the environment in a presentation to the class.
- Wave and watermill
- Solar panels
- Geothermal station
2 weeks to research; 1 day to present models
Type in “windmills, watermills, solar panels, dams”
