SSH55: Solar Intro

This course is a short introduction to solar energy concepts for teachers and curriculum developers in preparation for attending a Solar Primer Workshop. The course consists of two videos. “Why Solar” is a 5 minute video highlighting reasons for exploring solar energy, while “Your Solar Home” (25 min) introduces the vocabulary and basic concepts for how we can heat, cool, and power our homes with the sun. Please make some notes on what issues and concepts peaked your interest, as we’ll start the Primer Workshop with a discussion of what is “Solar”? and field any “Burning Questions about Solar Energy?”.
