Resources by Grade Span Name of Resource Description Instructional Suggestions Link to the Resource
Interactive / Simulations • The Carbon Footprint Calculator allows students to determine the carbon they contribute to the atmosphere. • Teachers can have students explore ways to reduce their carbon footprint. • Data can be used for graphing, research or writing. • Teachers might use this simulation within the context of their science, mathematics, social studies, or English-language arts classes.
Interactive / Simulations • The Windfarm is a downloadable simulation that asks students to position the turbines to generate maximum electricity while minimizing disturbances to wildlife and local people. • Teachers might use this to help students understand wind patterns, examine city planning decisions, or within the context of a study on electrical generation / renewable energy.
Interactive Site • The Engineers interactive site allows students to explore questions related to engineering such as: • What is engineering • Who are engineers • Types of engineers • Where engineers work • Teachers can use this to help students understand career pathways.
Simulations • Students can click through the proposed decarbonization facility in development in both Scotland and Carson, California to learn about the interaction of systems and new technologies California Scotland
Videos of Energy Technologies • Videoshelp students understand the sequence of how technologies work • Includes audio-visual text for Universal Access • Videos include topics such as: • Solar(how PV Cells work) • Wind(how turbines work) • Natural Gas • Hydrogen
Calculators • Interactive calculators can help students understand the scale and relationships between and among various measurements (dimensional analysis).
Interactive / Customizable Graphs • Students can create custom charts and tables showing the energy types, regions and timeframes that interest them. • Charts can be exported for use in presentations and reports. • Rather than spending time helping students draw the graph or chart and plot the points, this tool allows the teacher to focus students on critical thinking related to interpretation of the data.
Board Games • Technology-based or traditional board game • Pictures, stories and glossaries for universal access • Include topics such as: • Human energy • Optics • Electricity • renewable / nonrenewable energy • Conservation of the environment • Sound / vibration • Force and motion
Information, Games and Quizzes • Information on sources of energy at a student level • Lessons for use in the classroom • Definitions of energy terms • Quizzes for students • Games using energy themes • Simulations • Case studies • Connections to the science museum (UK) games Instructional videos Interactive maps
Energy DVDs • Energy for the World is a series of DVDs (each 15 minutes in length) on: • Oil and gas formation • Refining and products from oil • Renewable energy • Teacher notes include a script of the DVDs with: • Discussion questions • Hands-on demonstrations • Student research ideas
Instructional Posters • Posters help teachers focus instruction on the content within the standards • Helps make abstract concepts more concrete • Instructional Posters include topics such as: • Climate Change • Careers • Energy Use • Renewable Energy • Fossil Fuels • Solar Energy • Sustainability
Data Tables and Charts • Downloadable data tables on the location, production, consumption, and pricing of various sources of energy are available, including: • Oil • Natural Gas • Coal • Nuclear Energy • Hydroelectricity • Primary Energy • Renewables • Electricity
