Investigation: Conservation of Energy
By rolling marbles down a six-foot length of track, physical scientists determine how much energy is lost to heat. It is recommended that you opt for the foam pipe insulation track because more friction slows the marble, allowing...

Electrical Energy from Source to Destination
After viewing images of energy resources used for generating electricity, the class discusses the process of transformation. In pairs, they work on describing what they see in a diagram of a power plant and in graphing its energy data.
