Power House: Experiments in Future Technics provides an engaging
introduction to regenerative energy sources while learning basic concepts
and principles in physical science. The kit focuses on the heat and light
energy from the sun, the energy from the wind, as well as with
electrochemical and plant energy. You will learn how to transform and use
these forms of energy.
With this Power House kit you can build a model house complete
with solar panels, windmill, greenhouse, and desalination system. You can
build and operate an electric train, windmill, solar cooker, solar hot water
tank, hygrometer, electric motor, power hoist, sail car, and more! Plant
watercress, prepare sauerkraut, and make chewing gum. Learn how plants
convert sunlight into energy for your body and your engines.
The thoughtfully designed series of experiments were developed by
physicist Uwe Wandrey. Professor Wandrey creatively integrates physical
science and technology lessons with the adventure of building a home.
The Power House Experiment Manual is organized around the story of a
group of island dwellers who must learn to live sustainably using the
resources available to them on their small island. As you read their journal
entries and learn of their projects and experiments, you build models of the
same projects and conduct the same experiments alongside them.
