This is a book about the importance of the Sun's energy as it relates to its impact on the Earth’s environment. Learners will read or listen to a story about a young boy, Joshua, who finds out that the Sun provides the Earth with energy in the... (View More)

This is an activity about magnetic fields. Using iron filings, learners will observe magnets in various arrangements to investigate the magnetic field lines of force. This information is then related to magnetic loops on the Sun's surface and the... (View More)

Audience: High school

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will set up a simple circuit using a battery, wire, and knife switch, and then use a compass to map the magnetic field lines surrounding the wire. Next, they will add a coil of wire to the simple... (View More)

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will use a compass to map the magnetic field lines surrounding a coil of wire that is connected to a battery. This activity requires a large coil or spool of wire, a source of electricity such as... (View More)

This activity introduces learners to the visible portion of electromagnetic spectrum. A visible spectrum is projected in the classroom using a diffraction grating and learners reproduce it using colored pencils. Filters are also used to block... (View More)

In this experiment, students replicate a version of the 1800 experiment in which a form of radiation other than visible light was discovered by the famous astronomer Sir Frederick William Herschel. Students use glass prisms, thermometers, and... (View More)

Audience: Elementary school

In this activity, learners use visible light, radios, infrared remotes, heat lamps, and black lights (ultraviolet) to identify detectors of these sources as well as materials that transmit or block the energy. This activity is available on the back... (View More)
