Stars and Energy Transport - Google Hangout

Wednesday, 25 March, 2015
Virtual

Stars and Energy Transport  is a Google Hangout (one in a series with Dr Pamela L. Gay) held on Wednesday, March 25, 18:00 (CET).

The Earth is warm because energy created in the core of the Sun is able to travel from the Sun’s Core to its surface, and then shine through space all the way to Earth. As it travels, the light is transformed from deadly high-energy particles to the nice warm light that keeps us alive. In this Hangout, we will discuss the primary ways energy is transported: convection, conduction, and radiation.

Highlighted Mission: SOHO

Inquiry Activities: Explore how each of the following works: Lava lamps, geothermal power, and heat lamps. (real world or simulated)

A recording of the Hangout is available here.

The lesson is available here.
