ECO KIDS EXPLORE features the 5 different types of "Green Power" which are becoming increasingly popular: Solar Power, Wind Power, Geothermal energy, Ethanol and Hybrid Cars. This series investigates these energy sources in an understandable way, which will help young viewers learn how to help solve the problems facing our earth today. As our world grows, so does the demand for energy. As pollution increases and our fossil fuels deplete there is a need for more reliable affordable and eco-friendly source of energy - Green Power.
Join the Eco=Kids Explorers as they travel to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), having been granted an all-access pass to learn about Electric-Plug-in cars. Before key interviews with scientists and engineers, the Explorers give a history of the Electric-Car from the beginning of the 20th Century to today. Then we explore an electric car that was designed at NREL and is being tested for possible mass production.
Join the Eco=Kids Explorer team as they teach students about water treatment. After a brief history of clean water usage, our hosts visit a water treatment plant. We learn of two types of transforming water into usable water: purification and desalination. The hosts demonstrate how to do their own water filtration experiment from a class room or home.
HYDROGEN FUEL CELL
Join the Eco=Kids Explorers as they travel to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) with an all-access pass to learn about Hydrogen Fuel Cells. After an explanation and history of what a Hydrogen Fuel Cell is, our explorers team up with NREL testers and explain a modern Hydrogen Fuel Cell car. Students will learn how close we are to having them in our driveways.
Follow the Eco=Kids as they learn the history of Hydroelectric Energy and explore the process of turning the down flow of water into usable energy. Watch our explorers discover the function of the turbine and water level at the hydroelectric dam, as well as the scale of a dam construction.
In this installment our explorers visit three recycling plants: aluminum, paper and plastic. Follow the cross country paths of a regular aluminum can, cereal box and plastic bottle through the cycle of production, use, recycling bin, melting, washing, pressing and back to production. Learn to make your own recycled paper at home with the Eco=Kids Explore and investigate the costs of large scale recycling.
