Investigating the Fundamentals of Energy

This workshop demonstrates how hands-on activities lead students to understand the relationships that exist between speed, mass, position, and energy. The activities also develop skills in science and engineering practices with the greatest emphasis on their ability to plan and carry out investigations.

Important core ideas include: Potential and kinetic energy; conservation of energy; identifying energy flows; experimental techniques to measure energy; and relationships between height, speed, and energy.

Skills also include collecting data, graphing data, and performing meaningful calculations.
