How do we heat our homes, light our rooms, and power our cars? With energy! And the type of energy we use matters to our health and the health of the planet.
In Renewable Energy: Power the World with Sustainable Fuel, young scientists ages 9 to 12 learn how switching from nonrenewable energy sources to renewable ones can help make our homes, businesses, cities, and world better, healthier places. What are those renewable resources? Solar, wind, biofuel, hydro, and geothermal!
Hands-on projects, essential questions, links to online primary sources, and science-minded prompts to think more about energy, the environment, and the repercussions of our choices make this book a key addition to classrooms and libraries.
