Clim'way online simulation
In french and english, a simulation to explore climate change mitigation policies. Students have 50 years of simulation to eliminate climate-change emissions.
Students are challenged to simulate a city, maximizing metrics like population and well-being while minimizing metrics like energy use and pollution. Teachers or students can make their own objectives, such as getting a top score on environmental issues. A limited version of the game runs off-line.
Energy Lab
Visitors try to manage primary energy sources to keep carbon dioxide emissions from skyrocketing in this simulation of the 21st century. As each decade goes by, users must choose how different sources grow or decline. Demand, carbon capture technologies, and efficiency are variable.
FirstLook Online Power Assessment and Feasibility Tool
Map-based tool for finding windy areas and viability of wind power at a certain location. A first look is free, then there's a fee for site-specific data.
Free Physics Instructional Software energy simulations
Windows and Mac software for experimenting with numbers in energy production and use, to get students thinking about sources and sinks of the energy.
Gearbox Labs
Gearbox Labs, a nonprofit curriculum organization, offers labs for building circuits in the simulator TinkerCad, which is nice because it's graphic and it includes Arduino and sensors.
Gearbox offers its programs in USA and Mexico.
Online Models for Global Warming by David Archer
Useful, compact models made to accompany David Archer's textbook Global Warming:Understanding the forecast.
