Students can conduct investigations showing evidence of illumination from an external source such as the Sun.
Using Solar Rovers, students can plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
Using Solar Rovers, students can make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
Using Solar Rovers, students can apply scientific ideas to design, test, and redefine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
Students can use Solar Rovers to plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved
Using Solar Rovers, students can develop an investigation and model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance change, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
Students can conduct investigations showing evidence that the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave is related to solar energy gathered with the solar cells.
Students can use Solar Rovers to develop and use a model to describe how waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
Students can use Solar Rovers to develop a model or experiment to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
Students can use Solar Rovers to design, build, and redefine a devise that works with given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
Students can use Solar Rovers to design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
Students can use Solar Rovers to conduct investigations about technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture energy.
Students can use Solar Rovers in an investigation to design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
