Science of Energy

Science of Energy

$ 300.00


Elementary Guide (Grades 3-5)
Intermediate Guide (Grades 6-8)
Secondary Guide (Grades 9-12)


This unit provides background information and hands-on experiments to explore the different forms of energy and how energy is transformed from one form to another. Groups of students master six stations, then teach others about the energy transformations at their stations. Teacher demonstrations are included to introduce the unit. Reinforcement activities are also included. The stations include equipment to teach transformations focusing on kinetic and potential energy, heat, light, motors, batteries, and electromagnetism. 

The kit includes all three leveled guides (elementary, intermediate, and secondary), which include detailed teacher instructions, student instructions for the six stations, laboratory safety procedures, and the equipment necessary to conduct the experiments. The Science of Energy Kit is available for sale or rental and works with all three levels of curriculum.

Replacement parts can be purchased separately so that the kit can be used for many years. Prices and information about replacement items can be obtained by calling 1-800-875-5029.

Guides are also available in PDF format as a FREE download.
