Safety Smart ® Science Renewable Energy Recommended for grades 4,5,6,7,8

By exploring the science of renewable energy, Bill Nye the Science Guy demonstrates how we can use science and technology to engineer a brighter tomorrow. Newton’s First Law is explained using hands-on demos. Bill Nye also compares renewable and non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels, solar, wind, and hydroelectricity. Scientists are working every day to develop new forms of renewable energy sources that are safe, efficient, and friendly to the planet. Energy sources that one day might eliminate our reliance on fossil fuels – now that’s Safety Smart®!
