This video introduces the Focus on Energy project. It was recognized as a Presenters' Choice video in the NSF 2016 Video Showcase.
This video shows students representing and reasoning about energy forms and flows. It was featured in the NSF 2017 Video Showcase.
Focus on Energy resources provide a framework for reasoning about and representing energy across science curricula and in everyday life. We call this framework "The Energy Tracking Lens".
This video shows various forms of energy (energy of motion; heat energy; sound energy) as well as energy transfer (e.g. from the bowling ball to the pins).
In this video, a group of fourth grade students analyzes the energy flow when a solar panel is used to power an electric motor that spins a propeller.
