Title: Effects of the Sun on our Planet
Url: http://solar-center.stanford.edu/activities/space-weather.html
Description: Students experiment with plants, light, heat, and water evaporation. They experiment with solar cells to design a simple solar cooker, create a "solar-powered" method to perform a routine task, or build a parabolic solar collector. They explore radio signals during daytime and nighttime. Older students construct an ionosphere monitor to track solar storms and other changes in the ionosphere.
