TeachEngineering: Zero-Energy Housing Relations

Physics Front Related Resources

TeachEngineering: Zero-Energy Housing is supplemented by NOVA: How Do Solar Panels Work?
relation created by Caroline Hall

Flash interactive that takes the learner inside a photovoltaic cell to see the physics behind solar panels.


TeachEngineering: Zero-Energy Housing is supplemented by NOVA: Saved by the Sun
relation created by Caroline Hall

Free 53-minute video by NOVA that explores the promise and challenge of solar energy. Excellent videography and a solid overview of both science and consumer use (appropriate for secondary grades).


TeachEngineering: Zero-Energy Housing covers the same topic (different course level) as TryEngineering: Solar Structures
relation created by Caroline Hall

A somewhat simpler lab activity for Grades 5-7 that also explores principles of passive solar design.
