For your STEM curriculum.

Grades 7 and up. Refill kit includes aluminum foil, eight resealable plastic bags, eight each of black and white cards, eight small corrugated boxes, and carton sealing tape. Required but not included: multimeters with Type-K thermocouple port and two 250-watt halogen work lights. Students are challenged to design and construct a solar water heater to melt ice and analyze the results. In this kit, students will measure the thermal energy delivered to an area, design and build a device to concentrate and capture this energy in order to melt ice, and determine the efficiency of the device. Students will also be able to explain the effect of convection, conduction, and radiation energy as it relates to heating water remotely, explain the difference between the reflective projection of a constant-radius curve and a parabolic curve, and understand why different materials and dimensions produce different results in solar water heaters. For 32 students in groups of eight.
