Title: Clean Energy: Converting Light to Energy
Url: http://nanosense.sri.com/activities/cleanenergy/
Publisher: SRI International
Description: The NanoEd Resource Portal, a “dynamic repository for information dissemination, research and collaborations among the community of nanoscale science and engineering education (NSEE) learners, teachers and researchers,” provides this introductory nanoscience activity focusing on energy production. During this activity students have the opportunity to learn about alternative energy technologies and the application of nanoscience to creating new “energy conversion mechanisms.” Student learning objectives are included at the beginning of the lesson to provide a context for what students will gain from these activities. Two lessons, “Introduction to Clean Energy” and “Solar Energy and Nanoscience” make up the content of this activity. .” Each lesson contains an overview, teacher materials, PowerPoint slides and notes, and student materials available in PDF format. Some of the animations for this activity require Flash Player. This is an excellent resource, which can be easily adapted into your classroom.
