Why is eco-friendly important to architects? Looking for an authentic way to teach energy conservation and integrate engineering? This lesson helps students understand why eco-friendly architecture is an important design problem.
How do architects design eco-friendly buildings that take advantage of the heat transfer from the sun's radiation? Students create an investigation as they explore radiation and its heat transferring potential.
How can conduction help designers and engineers build eco-friendly homes? Tire of the same old Heat Transfer Lessons? Use this lesson for a real life case of how an architect uses conduction to determine eco-friendly materials.
How do the designers of geo thermal heating use the science concept of heat transfer to design eco-friendly building systems? Students complete an investigation as they explore geo thermal convection systems.
The reliance of fossil fuels for transportation has become a global issue. Is solar energy a great hope for the transportation industry? Students design and test the a solar car to determine how the design of the car has an effect on its performance.
