Lantern Moon: Doing research on wind turbines in primary school with simple experiments


How do people, animals and objects get inside the TV and how do remote-controlled cars work? Since childhood technics were of tremendous interest to Mona Goudarzi. Today she is a mechanical engineer. In ‘Lantern Moon and Hot Ears’ she presents exciting questions and experiments on wind turbines for primary students and explains how wind is turned into energy.

The teaching brochure ‘Lantern Moon and Hot Ears’ was created by an international working group following the Science on Stage festival 2011 in Copenhagen. The new edition with simplified texts contains templates which can be copied to promote language skills with natural sciences. Scientists explain in them, how they came to their chosen profession and the sometimes odd stories that happened to them along the way. The collection contains assignments to promote language skills for students with various experiments. Primary school teachers working with these assignments do not need to have specialized scientific knowledge. The brochure can be downloaded here.
