9780826349019: Powering the Future: New Energy Technologies (Barbara Guth Worlds of Wonder Science Series for Young Readers)

Can you power a car with pond weed? In searching for alternatives to fossil fuels, scientists are like detectives. They pursue clues--including investigating algae as a possible new energy source.

This book takes young readers inside laboratories to watch as scientists grapple with finding safe and cost-effective ways to harness alternative energy sources. Solar, wind, nuclear, geothermal, and biomass are discussed, and also introduced are futuristic technologies on the cutting edge of research today.

Thaddeus shares her conversations with scientists and plunges young readers into the world of practical science--of how researchers work on problems important to everyone. Their quest for renewable energy sources is a fascinating exploration of possible answers to the question, How will we fuel our future?

Geothermal vents with their steamy plumes, wind turbines and transmission lines silhouetted against the sky, the arrays of glistening mirrors that make up concentrating solar panels--these scenes offer glimpses of the future of energy. Because much of the best research on alternative sources of energy is conducted in New Mexico, Thaddeus highlights the important work found throughout the state.

Powering the Future will awaken young people's interest in the topic of energy by showing them how science plays a vital role in their lives today and for years to come.
