Capturing the Sun's Warmth

Students explore the variety of ways to use solar energy. They investigate the thermal energy storage capacities of different test materials to determine which to use in passive solar building design. They explain how passive solar heating works, describe materials that are appropriate for use in passive solar heating and see how engineers design passive solar heating systems for buildings.
