Topic: Understanding Earth and space systems - conservation of energy and resources
Students will research, design, and build (using the materials and tools provided) a solar powered fan that transforms solar/electric energy into kinetic energy. Students will investigate the system to determine where energy is lost during the transformation. Students will record their results, make modifications and re-test (if time permits), and complete a report on the steps they took to solve the design challenge, and the results of the investigation.
