Catch the Wind, Harness the Sun
Power up! With our upcoming book Catch the Wind, Harness the Sun in hand, kids can have fun and help the planet by exploring useful ways to put nature’s forces to work. Twenty-two projects include creating a personal solar power source, building a small windmill and a solar cooker, and setting up a pedal-power station.
