Attention - Shipping

The transition of our inventory to a new warehouse is taking longer than we anticipated. As a result, we are experiencing fulfillment delays and order(s) are taking longer to ship out. We are working hard to get the stock moved to our new facility as quickly as possible so that we are better equipped to meet your needs. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.


Flick a Switch

by: Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan

When students flick on lights, boot up a computer, or turn on a television, do they think about how that energy is produced? The majority of electricity in the United States is generated from power plants that burn fossil fuels, causing large amounts of carbon dioxide and other pollutants to be released into the atmosphere. Conserving energy not only saves us money, it helps reduce the demand for fossil fuels. This chapter focuses on how electricity gets to our homes, the reasons electricity should be conserved, and practical ways that we can use energy wisely.
