By studying surface area and heat transfer in real-world scenarios, your students model how to harness the geothermal energy that is generated and stored in the ground beneath them. Student groups design their own model to demonstrate the use of geothermal energy and compete with each other to implement the most effective design. They demonstrate their knowledge of surface area and heat transfer by answering questions and interpreting results. Materials for 32 students working in 8 groups of 4.

These NEW kits for middle and high school environmental science offer:
Carolina STEM Challenge® Emerging Energies Series kits engage and inspire students with fun, real-world design challenges in an exciting tournament-style format. Integrating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) into your environmental science curriculum has never been more exciting or easier.
Carolina STEM Challenge® kits incorporate STEM components and focus on engineering concepts and practices in line with the Next Generation Science Standards. Student teams design, build, test, and compete in a cooperative-learning environment. This gives them the opportunity to strengthen their critical-thinking and creative problem-solving skills and reflect on their entry’s performance and what they could do to improve it.
