Harvesting energy from places such as wind turbines, radioactive elements, and fossil fuels require knowledge of concepts such as Transfer of Energy, Energy Forms and Electric Circuits. To establish a sustainable environment, comprehensive knowledge of Conservation of Energy is mandatory. Energy impacts everything and to understand it, is to create an environment in which to thrive. Skills and techniques mastered in Mechanical Energy and Fission and Fusion, will establish a foundational proficiency that is directly applied to understanding the creation and manipulation of Energy. Proceed completing the concepts in the "Energy Pathway."

A detailed description of how energy can be transformed from one form to the next.
Taylor Wilson believes nuclear fusion is a solution to our future energy needs, and that kids can change the world. And he knows something about both of those: When he was 14, he built a working fusion reactor in his parents' garage. Now 17, he takes the TED stage at short notice to tell (the short version of) his story.

Here are some amazing facts about energy to shock your brain!
For students to use Safari Montage they only need to sign in as they would a school computer.
In this live-action, fast-paced program, Bill Nye the Science Guy revs things up as he explores water, muscles, heat, light, sound and other types of energy that make things go, run or happen. Along the way, students will see how to conduct home experiments that will transform potential energy into kinetic energy and use falling water to make energy. Features comedy, music videos, interviews with real scientists and hands-on experiments to make the concepts presented understandable and fun.
23 min 3 sec.
Bill Nye the Science Guy explores the science of renewable energy and demonstrates how we can use science and technology to engineer a brighter tomorrow. Using his trademark blend of hands-on demos and humor, Nye explains Law of Conservation of Energy. Then, he's off to the Renewable Energy Lab at UL to compare renewable and nonrenewable energy sources such as fossil fuels, solar energy, wind power and hydroelectricity.
21 min 4 sec.
Bill Nye explains the safe uses of electricity, as well as the dangers, in this scientific program. Students learn about the basics of electricity and how it moves through something such as a power cord. Nye also travels to the Underwriters Laboratories facility to find out how electrical products are tested for safety.

In Engines, inhabitants of Mammoth Island look for an alternative to mammoths to speed up pizza delivery. They decide to experiment with different engines and discover how each works -- from simple rockets to turbofan jet engines to gasoline engines. Comparing the advantages and drawbacks of these internal combustion engines, the islanders determine which one will serve their business best and ensure their pizzas are delivered on time. Part of the multivolume series The Way Things Work, based on the best-selling book by David Macaulay.

n Mechanical Energy, students learn how energy can be transferred from one object to another to make something move -- like wind blowing on a sail. Discover that mechanical energy can exist in two states: moving, or kinetic energy; and stored, or potential energy. A roller coaster is just one vivid example of how mechanical energy is constantly changing form -- from potential to kinetic -- and back again. Kids also discover that sound is mechanical energy, a concept that is explained visually through a fun demonstration. Simple machines are introduced as ways to use mechanical energy to make work easier. An engaging experiment allows kids to put their own mechanical energy to work. Part of the multivolume Energy in Action Video Series.

In The Transfer of Energy, aspiring scientist Sylvie uncovers some compelling examples of how energy is never lost -- it just changes form as it moves through the universe. Discover that without energy transfers, there could be no life on Earth! Colorful, fast-paced visuals help students learn that heat energy from the sun is transferred to the Earth's surface and among objects in three different ways: conduction, convection and radiation. Find out that the sun's energy is also continually being transferred into different forms that we depend on to live and grow. A fun experiment with golf balls and ping-pong balls allows kids to see an energy transfer in action. James Watt's steam engine is an excellent historical example of how heat energy can be harnessed to do work as it changes form. Part of the multivolume Energy in Action Video Series.
