  • 5/7: Quiz on renewable/nonrenewable energy sources.
  • 5/4: Watch the video on renewable energy sources OR work on missing work.
  • 5/3: Begin the energy lab
  • STEP 1 - To log-in, click HERE and click “Log In.” Click “Sign in with Google.”
  • STEP 2 - Once you are logged in, scroll down the page until you see “The Energy Lab.” Click “Learn More.” Click “About This Lab” to get to the videos in step 2. At the bottom of the page, click “Energy Lab Video Questions.”
  • STEP 3 - Watch the first video, answer the question that goes with it, then click “Next.” Once you’ve reviewed your answers for a section, click “Submit Answers,” then click “Continue” to watch the next videos. Once you’ve answered every question from each section, move “Continue” to move on to the lab/challenge.
  • STEP 4 - Study the energy potential maps created for NOVA Labs by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
  • STEP 5 - Pick a city by clicking "Accept Challenge." You’ll then be given a budget and a renewable energy production target. Your challenge will be to design a system that meets this target as cheaply as possible.
  • STEP 6 - Using sliders, you can select the types of energy you want and how much of each you want. As you move the sliders, you’ll instantly see how your choices impact your budget.
  • STEP 7 - When you have designed your system, you can test it against yearly historical data.  During the test you’ll be given feedback and the opportunity to redesign your system.
  • STEP 8 - When the test is complete, you’ll power up your renewable energy system and find out if you met your production goals.
  • STEP 9 - Redesign your system until it 'works.'
  • STEP 10 - When you finish, tell Mrs. Yan.
  • 5/2: Read section 9.9 "Energy Use" and copy summary notes. Then, watch THIS video and complete the corresponding questions. Can 100% renewable energy power the world_ video questions.pdf
  • 5/1: Read about renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, and take notes in your own words. There will be a quiz on this material on Monday.Renewable and nonrenewable energy sources reading.pdf
  • 4/30: Read section 9.4 “Forms of Energy” and copy summary notes.
