The Renewable Energy with Vernier lab book features 26 experiments in wind and solar energy with a combination of explorations, traditional experiments, inquiry investigations, engineering projects and more. In these experiments, students learn about renewable energy, experiment with variables affecting power output from model wind turbines and solar panels and participate in engineering projects such as building a wind farm or a solar charger to meet certain design criteria.

Many of the experiments use the Vernier Energy Sensor and the Vernier Variable Load, two products that were designed to measure the power and energy output of renewable energy sources. The experiments also use the KidWind Advanced Wind Experiment Kits and the KidWind Solar Thermal Exploration Kit.
