Summary

Everywhere you look, renewable energy is getting a lot of attention. Given the role that today's kids will play in creating, promoting, and using renewable energy technologies, teachers and parents are looking for ways to help children learn about the subject. And kids, of course, are always looking for new ways to have fun. With Catch the Wind, Harness the Sun, kids, teachers, and parents all get just what they need. The book offers 22 exciting projects and experiments focused on producing and playing with renewable energy. Children ages 8 to 12 will extend and deepen their knowledge of environmental science. Projects range from the quick and simple -- like the Pie Plate Wind-Maker -- to the thrillingly large-scale, like Pedal Power, in which kids use a bicycle to power a 12-vold battery. Exciting illustrations and fun-fact sidebars will entertain and spark further curiosity, and children will love to read the inspiring stories of real kids who are leading the way with real renewable energy initiatives. Education doesn't get more fun than this. Catch the Wind, Harness the Sun offers more than enough to get any kid charged up -- and very well-informed -- about renewable energy.
