General
How I Use It
I would use this product in tandem with CA standards of science education during the period of exploration of energy and energy dependency in the classroom.
My Take
I like this project as a teaching tool, because it utilizes engaging videos, construction models, and optional external educational resources. It also allows for a lot of freedom for the instructor to build it into a pre-existing lesson plan.
