Investigating Energy from the Sun
Most of the energy from the sun the earth receives is in the form of electromagnetic energy. In this module, students explore the physical properties of electromagnetic waves given off by the sun. The physical properties of infrared, visible and ultraviolet radiation are explored using the concepts of selective transmission, reflection and absorption. Through an established story line, students use evidence to establish a relationship between the physical properties of ultraviolet waves and their associated health risks of cataracts and skin cancer. Students then determine ways of reducing the overall risks associated with ultraviolet exposure. The embedded assessment system provides a focus on student ability to analyze data.

Module activities have been correlated to the South Carolina and Georgia Science Standards.
Workshop to be held at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center
