Lantern Moon: Winning energy from renewable raw materials - simple experiments for primary school

Laternenmond: Experimente für die Grundschule rund um Energiegewinnung aus nachwachsenden Rohstoffen

Regina Palkovits is a chemical engineer and investigates how energy can be won from renewable raw materials. In ‘Lantern Moon and Hot Ears’ she introduces primary school students to the topics renewable energy, environment and fuels. In a simple experiment the students are making lamp oil from walnuts, learning about the interconnection between energy and fuels.

The teaching brochure ‘Lantern Moon and Hot Ears’ was created by an international working group following the Science on Stage festival 2011 in Copenhagen. The new edition with simplified texts contains templates which can be copied to promote language skills with natural sciences. Scientists explain in them, how they came to their chosen profession and the sometimes odd stories that happened to them along the way.

The collection contains assignments to promote language skills for students with various experiments. Primary school teachers working with these assignments do not need to have specialized scientific knowledge. The brochure can be downloaded here.
