Solar Powered Fun

I love science kits.  It takes away the brain power of planning and shopping for expeiments.  I ordered this one through Home Science Tools, a great web resource for science supplies.

Our first experiment was conducting an experiment to test the "greenhouse" effect.

It was hot outside and perfect to begin a last minute study on solar energy.

Instead of using paper to record our results, we used chalk and the patio.

This next experiement was from the same kit showing how to use the sun to boil water.

Here it is here...After about 30 minutes in 80 degree weather, the water in the test tube boiled and overflowed.  Today's experiment, cooking eggs outside.


  1. What fun experiments!!! I've always wanted to try those...

  2. Sounds like a perfect day of homeschooling to me! Awesome job guys
