Engineering Design of Thermal Home with Renewable Energy Source for specific Biomes of the world 6 to 8
(0 stars, 1 ratings)
Students will work together in families to discover one of Earthís biomes. As a family, the students will focus their research on the climate, typical flora and fauna, and typical weather cycles of their biome. The family will then use their knowledge of thermal energy combined with their research data on their biome to design, construct and present their home design and reasoning to the class in a creative manner. Students will then do further research into weather patterns, statistical data of precipitation, temperature, hours of sunshine, etc and viable renewable energy possibilities so that families can then add to their homes a unique means to use the natural resources in their biome as a renewal resources to generate energy for their home.
IMPROVING SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH THERMAL IMAGING 6 to 12
(0 stars, 2 ratings)
Students will use a thermal imaging camera and advance digital technology to analyze homes and business structures and provide them with an energy efficiency assessment. Students will also leave a dvd on how to do home energy improvements and follow up with a survey of property owners energy saving.
