Giving kids a
hands-on opportunity to see energy in action, these 25 projects are
an exciting introduction to the ways this hot topic affects both
world politics and everyday lives. Packed with information about what
energy really is, where it comes from, and its alternative sources,
the projects range from a steam-powered boat and a solar-powered
water heater to an electric burglar alarm and a geothermal geyser.
The tough topics of energy shortages are covered with enthusiasm in a
lively discussion so kids can make educated, positive changes for
we need power and how we get it are the topics addressed by this
wonderfully informative book for middle school children. I highly
recommend this book for any science classroom. It allows teachers to
teach about energy resources in a fun, engaging, and easy

book is a marvelous introduction to the basics of energy, written in

every young person in the world as the days of cheap and abundant
high-quality energy come to a close.

book is great fun, with energy projects that will inspire students

excitement and importance of energy, and Kathleen Reilly has done a
clear and engaging job.
