Fourth graders at Smithtown Elementary School are learning about all the different types of energy. During their potential and kinetic energy unit, the students worked with Project Lead the Way coach Kelly Bigliani and engaged in hands-on lessons to demonstrate the types of energy.
Students used hand warmers and glow sticks to feel and see how energy is converted. They used a generator made from the Vex kit to learn about light energy and mechanical energy. The fourth graders used other examples to demonstrate how energy changes from one form to another. They each created their own kinetic or rollback cans using aluminum cans, weights, rubber bands and paper clips. The cans demonstrated the transition of kinetic energy.
