Eco=Kids Explore: Geothermal Energy

Simply put, geothermal energy derived from heat produced by the core of the earth. Geothermal energy is one of the oldest renewable resources used by humans. It has been used since the Ancient Roman times as a heat source. Recently, we have begun to harness that energy as a source of power. Geothermal power plants take the heat from the earth and bring it to the surface to create steam that spins a turbine. We have a constant supply of heat from the earth. The challenge is finding where it is strongest and bringing it to the surface. The Eco Kids will guide us through this process and explain a few different ways that geothermal power plants operate. Find out how experts are working to fine tune the process and make geothermal power plants more affordable and useful across the country.

Eco=Kids Explore: Hybrid Cars

The first hybrid car was introduced in 1905. It had two distinct power sources working together to make it run; gas and electric power. However, using only gasoline back then was cheap and easy to power, and the hybrid car was forgotten; until recently. Since the fuel widely used now is a non-renewable resource and becoming increasingly less affordable, the hybrid car is making a comeback. Hybrid cars are operated by a computer system called the Digital Drive Line. When you step on the gas pedal, you are telling the system how fast you need to go and the car decides whether to use gas, electric power or both. The benefit of the hybrid is that instead of running on gas for an entire trip, it uses non-polluting electric power when possible. The hybrid car is ideal for city driving and traffic. By using less gas, hybrid cars help cut pollution and helps save drivers money at the gas pump.

Eletricity: Force that Changed the World

The Force that Changed the World documents the massive change electricity has had on the civilized world over the past century, and what it holds for the future. The ancient Greeks first discovered attractive electric forces when they rubbed amber with wool. In 1600, William Gilbert discovered that glass and diamonds behaved like amber and called these materials "electrics," based on the term electrum, the Latin word for amber. From Ben Franklin to Alessandro Volta, Andre Ampere, and George Ohm, advances in understanding electricity were made. From the telephone to the television and from the refrigerator to air conditioning, we have reached the point where the whole world is but a key stroke away.
