UB has created a hands-on solar kit for area educators. This kit is available to supplement an on-site visit to the UB Solar Strand. The kit contains a radiometer, solar bag, solar powered hopping frogs, a solar demonstration kit and solar safe viewing glasses. Included in the kit are ideas for how materials can be used to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom such as understanding various forms of energy, parallel circuits, encouraging exploration of density, air pressure, buoyancy and convection, forming a hypothesis and conducting simple experiments. The use of the solar kit is only limited by your creative approach!
Kits will only be made available to educators who have confirmed reservations to visit the Solar Strand. If necessary, please submit your reservation request.
