Energy-Efficient Housing
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

We all know that it takes energy to provide us with the basics of shelter: heating, cooling, lighting, electricity, sanitation and cooking. To create energy-efficient housing that is practical for people to use every day requires combining many smaller systems that each perform a function well, and making smart decisions about the sources of power we use. Through five lessons on the topics of heat transfer, circuits, daylighting, electricity from renewable energy sources, and passive solar design, students learn about the science, math and engineering that go into designing energy-efficient components of smart housing that is environmentally friendly. Through numerous design/build/analyze activities, students create a solar water heater, swamp cooler, thermostat, model houses for testing, model greenhouse, and wind and water turbine prototypes. It is best if students are concurrently taking Algebra 1 in order to complete some of the worksheets.

Environmental Challenges in China: From Rural Villages to Big Cities
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Students learn about the wonderful and fascinating country of China, and its environmental challenges that require engineering solutions, many in the form of increased energy efficiency, the incorporation of renewable energy, and new engineering developments for urban and rural areas. China is fast becoming an extremely influential factor in our world today, and will likely have a large role in shaping the decades ahead. China is the world's largest energy consumer and the largest producer of carbon dioxide emissions, leading engineers and scientists to be concerned about the role these emissions play in rural and urban public and environmental health, as well as in global climate change. Through exploring some sources of air pollution, appropriate housing for different climate zones, and the types of renewable energy, the lessons and activities of this unit present ways that engineers are helping people in China, using an approach to cleaner, smarter, healthier and more-efficient ways of living that apply to people wherever they live.

Places, Authentic Images, and Destinations: Power Point Presentation
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Developed by Washington Latin Public Charter School, this thirty-nine slide Power Point presentation displays several pictures of popular, everyday destination places in the Arab world. The Power Point is thematically organized by a question (in Arabic) on its title slide - "Where are you going?" - and subsequent slides display popular places such as internet cafes, restaurants, homes, schools, and coffee shops.

Each slide is introduced by a question, "What is this?," and an answer "This is a...," both of which are in Arabic. Most pictures are authentic images taken on-location at several places throughout the Arab world, and thus feature prominent Arabic writing on signs, houses, advertisements, and so on.
