Energy Digital Presentations

  1. The presentation will focus on one of the following stations:
    1. Hand warmer
    2. Glow stick
    3. Generator

  1. The presentation must include the following:
    1. An image of the station
    2. A description of the change observed
    3. The forms of energy observed (mechanical, electrical, thermal, light, or chemical)
    4. How this energy conversion meets a human need or want



Energy Stations

  1. Hand Warmers
    • Use a tablet or other device to take a photograph of the hand warmer in the package.
    • Tear open the hand warmer package. Be careful not to damage the warmer inside.
    • Take another photograph of the hand warmer outside of the package.
    • In your Launch Log, write down your observations of how the hand warmer looks and feels. You may want to draw a sketch of the hand warmer as well.
    • Shake the hand warmer for at least 30 seconds.
    • After 5 minutes write down your observations of how the hand warmer looks and feels. Note any changes you observed.

  2. Glow sticks
    • Use a tablet or other device to take a photograph of the glow stick.
    • In your Launch Log, write down your observations of how the glow stick looks and feels. You may want to draw a sketch of the glow stick as well.
    • Bend the glow stick until you hear a “pop” sound.
    • Write down your observations of how the glow stick looks and feels and what the glow stick felt like when you bent it until it popped. Note any changes you observed.
    • Take another photograph of the glow stick.

3. Generator
    • The generator has a handle and LED as shown
    • An LED is a light emitting diode. You will learn more about LEDs in Activity 3.
    • Use a tablet or other device to take a photograph of the generator.
    • Use one hand to hold the generator firmly to the table top and the other hand to turn the crank. Start slowly, and then gradually increase the speed.
    • Take turns in your group turning the crank.
    • In your Launch Log, describe the generator and how it changed once you turned the crank.
    • Experiment with turning the crank at different speeds and in different directions. Document your observations in your Launch Log.
    • Take another photograph or record a video of the generator while a classmate is turning the hand crank.
