Concentration of CO2 in the Atmosphere

Button Up: Weatherization & Thermal Energy in-class workshop updated for grades 6–12

Designed to follow or complement a unit on heat transfer and the conservation of energy, Button Up asks students to consider how they can use less energy to heat their home while still keeping it at a comfortable temperature. VEEP offers two variants of the workshop, one for middle school and one for high school. You can read more about the workshops at VEEP’s website or download a PDF workshop summary sheet.

Middle school classes can follow the Button Up in-class workshop with the new Thermal Energy Extension: Weatherization Design Challenge, an engineering challenge for students to construct the most energy efficient model houses they can. VEEP offers use of a curriculum support kit that includes materials to run the extension.

To schedule a Button Up workshop, contact your local VEEP educator, or info@veep.org or 802-552-VRNG.  The Thermal Energy Extension: Weatherization Design Challenge kits can be reserved at the kits page of our website.
