  • Camping with Energy  by Kellen O. Pink class
  • Let's use my solar charged flashlight to see!
  • Wow! How does that work?
  • It's getting really dark out.
  • Well, the sun charges the battery inside the flashlight, and the energy is stored there until I turn it on and use the light. 
  • So it goes from light, to chemical, to light again. Pretty cool, right? And I guess my thumb could be an example of mechanical energy, because it pushes the button on! 
  • Woah!
  • Well, the Law of Conservation of Energy basically says that energy can't be destroyed, like at all. It only changes form.
  • The sunlight is kinetic energy, and the battery is an example of chemical energy (which is potential). Mechanical energy is tricky, because it's both. Meanwhile, electrical energy is kinetic. 
  • But how does the energy not just get destroyed?
  • Well, us walking around could be an example of mechanical energy, our conversation is an example of sound energy, and helium is an example of nuclear energy!
  • What other examples of energy are there? 
  • Wow! Energy is everywhere!
  • The energy for a fire goes from mechanical (the strike of the match) to thermal energy (the heat of the fire) to light energy (the light radiated by the fire)
  • Yeah! And you know, a fire is a good example of an energy transfer. 
  • It's really dark... let's make a fire to stay warm!
  • Let's set up our tents to save up our mechanical energy while we sleep! 
  • And let's eat some snacks to store up our potential chemical energy!
