Alternate Energy Demonstration

During the Alternate Energy Fair at the Farm in Summertown, TN, I was asked by the assistant principal of the local public high school if I could bring some of the ideas and technologies shown at the Fair into his science classrooms next year. I said I would be glad to. We also have a good connection with a science teacher in nearby Lawrenceburg, TN, and several public officials have expressed interest in seeing more, so it feels like an opening has been created for getting the word out about clean, renewable sources of power. I realize, however, that I don't have much of a kit available for use in show-and-tell. Most of the excellent solar devices at the Fair were brought here by participants. SO--I am assembling an ALTERNATE ENERGY DEMONSTRATION KIT for use in school classrooms, Chamber of Commerce meetings, demos for business groups, etc. I could use help of all kinds getting this kit together. If anyone has any small PV panels they would care to donate, and/or any solar devices, it would really help. I would like to have a small solar pump, a working model of a parabolic concentrator/Stirling engine unit, a turbine small enough to make power using the water flow from a science classroom tap, maybe a model car run on a few PV cells—things to turn on the kids (and the kid in everyone). Plus I would like suggestions-are any of you out there doing this already? Please let me in on your experience. I would like to assemble the best show possible for the important job of convincing people to go over to alternate energy.

It feels like the time is ripe. We are being asked for our input by people who know things must change, but don't quite know how to change them. If we act quickly, we could have demonstrations like this going on in schools all across the country. If any of you can help in any way, with donations of equipment or money, or suggestions about where to get same, or suggestions about how to put together a show, please let me know. Thank you.
