This course has been designed to show how different technologies using green or alternate energy can be used in the home.

Students create a model house from Plexiglas and install an amorphous silicon glass solar panel to simulate how to harness the sun's energy. The solar energy will be stored in a battery and reusable solderless breadboard to be used for all experiments.

The fully-illustrated manual guides students through 26 chapters of basic technology and fundamental concepts for household devices like lighting, thermostats, fire alarms, and burglar alarms. They will study solar panels, motors, fans, resistors, diodes, LEDs, switches, lamps, and batteries through a variety of activities and useful experiments.

This kit is ideal for beginners in grades 6 through college.
