Stimulate Higher Order Thinking Skills
Students will apply, analyze, and evaluate their STEM skills to create meaningful projects that will inspire them to think independently about how they can conserve the earth’s resources.
Through our initial unit of five lessons, correlated to California State Curriculum Standards in Science, students use their science and mathematic skills to investigate how solar energy is made and used in real-world contexts. Students also enhance their understanding of the related conservation principles.
Future lessons will focus upon the use of other power sources and use of energy-smart technologies: wind, biofuel, geothermal, waterpower, smart grid, energy efficient buildings, electric charging stations, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
