Mini PL Series 4th- 8th grade teachers, Jun 8-14

June 13, 2020 - 1:40am
Join us June 8th, 10th & 12th, from 11:00-12:15 for a 3-part series to learn about energy transfer, renewable/nonrenewable energy and the electric grid in California. Human activities, including energy use, impact our climate.  This series will address NGSS human impact and energy standards with locally focused energy lessons that can be delivered in school, remotely or blended. 

Participants enrolled in this series will:
Deepen energy content knowledge 
Learn from a practicing energy scientist in the field
Experience energy activities with at home materials and the outdoors
Receive tools and lessons for blended/distance learning 
Obtain resources for student action and/or citizen science
Receive a certificate of continuing education

Part 1. June 8, 2020, 11:00-12:15.  Discover and capture solar energy. Explore physical properties that impact the availability and absorption of solar energy and use simple materials to capture it.  Technology and materials needed: Zoom, google doc, padlet, outdoors, glass-sized container, water

Part 2. June 10, 2020, 11:00-12:15.  Investigate energy and energy transfer. Explore different forms of energy and how energy is transferred between forms and objects in the world around us. Build a  device that  transfers energy. Technology and materials needed: Zoom, google doc, notebook/paper, outdoors, phone camera, padlet, common household items. 

 Part 3. June 12, 2020, 11:00-12:15.  Understand energy and the CA Electric Grid. Using different forms of energy and multiple energy transfers and transformations, the electric grid allows us to use energy to do useful work and live comfortable lives. We will play a simulation game in which we build our own electric grid and learn about the sources of electricity in California and elsewhere.  Technology and materials needed: Zoom, google doc, padlet
