Today we did a science project about Geothermal energy. First, I explained that we can use natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat to produce energy known as renewable energy or green energy.
This is part 1 of our Geothermal energy experiments. What is Geothermal energy? Geothermal energy is an energy that is generated by earth’s heat. Geo means “earth” and thermal means “heat”. The heat inside the Earth is intense enough to melt rocks. Those molten rocks are known as magma. Because magma is less dense than the rocks surrounding it, it rises to the surface. Sometimes magma escapes through cracks in the Earth’s crust, erupting out of Continue reading
