Wonders of Wind: In this program students learn how to harness energy from the wind, advantages and disadvantages of wind energy, the importance of clean wind and ideal locations to install wind turbines to maximize energy output. Through construction of their own “turbine” and discussions about alternative energy, participants in this program gain an understanding of how this technology works and its importance for future energy generation.
Water Quality and Build Your Own Water Treament Plant: Students explore the importance of water resources and how they are protected and conserved. They work in groups to create their own water treatment facility.
Solar Science: Discover and discuss solar power as an energy resource. Students design, build and evaluate a solar device and discover how solar panels maximize efficiency.
Biology of Fishes: Students learn what fish eat, where they live and all about their internal anatomy.
Wonders of Wind: Explore the power of the wind. Discover the importance of wind energy, learn how to collect wind data using anemometers and create your own “mini-turbine.”
Intertidal Explorations: Students discover all the various types of animals that call the intertidal zone home.
Plankton Investigations: Students learn how to use scientific instruments and discover the microscopic organisms that are vital to the marine food chain.
Ocean Currents and Upwellings: Students discover how convection currents work and why they are important in a marine ecosystem.
Pier Fishing 101: Learn the basic skills necessary to catch a fish.
Water Quality and Conservation: Students will explore the importance of water resources and how they are protected and conserved.
Squid Dissection: Students will investigate the intricacies of structure and function of this unique organism.
We can “visit” your school virtually! In this program, we mail the school all necessary building supplies for students to test and build their own solar airboat. Students learn about the difference between non-renewable and renewable resources as well as how solar panels work. In this program, students are divided into teams with the goal of designing the most fluid and efficient solar air boat.
We come to your schools with all the supplies and a lesson on solar energy. Students discover and discuss solar power as an energy resource. Students design, build and evaluate a solar device and discover how solar panels maximize efficiency.
Wonders of Wind
We come to your schools with all the supplies and a lesson on wind energy. In this program, students learn about the difference between non-renewable and renewable resources as well as how solar panels work. Students then build and test their own solar airboats. First, students are divided into teams with the goal to design the most efficient wind turbine. Then, they test their design using a multi-meter and a box fan to simulate wind. Once the team believes they have the most efficient design, they compete with other teams and a winner will be determined.
