Thames & Kosmos Alternative Energy and Environmental Science Sustainable Earth Lab

News of environmental problems threatening life on Earth seems to be everywhere. All of this information can be frightening and confusing, especially to a child. This science kit gives you the tools and informationto learn firsthand about the environmental problems burdening our planet and how we as a civilization can overcome these problems through sustainable practices and the sensible use of technology.

The kit is organized into five main sections: renewable energies, natural resource usage, climate change prevention, waste and water management, and energy conservation. Exploring these topics by doing hands-on experiments and seeing real results helps young scientists attain a solid grounding in these often abstract and intangible concepts. Construct a miniature water treatment plant and learn how substances in unnatural concentrations can pollute habitats and harm life. Manufacture recycled paper and plastic. Get an understanding of the rapid growth in world population. Explore the causes and consequences of the greenhouse effect with carbon dioxide tests. Experiment with heat transfer and insolation. Build devices to explore wind power, water power, and passive and active solar power technology. Become an “energy detective” and track down wasteful uses of energy at school and in your home.

Ecotronics Eco Rocket

Ecotronic Toys are planet friendly techno fun. Did you know there are billions of batteries sold in the US every year – many of them for toys – but only about 1% of them are recycled? The rest end up in our landfills and are poisoning our planet. The world’s resources are diminishing quickly and we can’t afford this kind of waste, financially or ecologically. But you know what? Energy doesn’t have to cost anything. Ecotronic Toys bring electronic lights and sound to toys without the need to use traditional batteries. How’s that work? Part of the fun of Ecotronic toys is actually bringing them to life. Give it a shake or wind it up. The energy used to perform these simple motions gets converted to electrical energy by dynamo technology. This is then used to power the toy. The best part about Ecotronic Toys – they never run out of juice.
