4th-6th Grade

 

Savvy Sustainability

This episode explores how modern sustainability practices relate to Einstein's Law of thermodynamics. Einstein knew that energy couldn't be created or destroyed - only changed in form. Discover how various farms use sustainable practices in energy conversions. (created in 2014)
 

Chemistry of Life

This episode begins with the primary conversion of simple chemicals into complex compounds that form the building blocks of all life. Using further conversions that occur in a dairy cow, the Into the Outoors team decodes how plant material is converted to a variety of dairy-related foods that impact our lives. They also explore both the history and hands-on science that viewers can take into their kitchens to learn more for themselves with simple experiments … about the chemistry of life.

Cow Powered Breakfast

Five Star Dairy in Dunn County is powered completely by "cow power!" The cows on the farm not only make milk, they make electricity, too! And that electricity is used at Five Star Dairy, as well as 600 surrounding homes. Spend some time with Autumn and Sierra, as they tour the farm during a Dairy Breakfast event. The sisters learn all about how "cow power" works … and have a whole lot of fun in the process! (created in 2009)
 

Math of Methane

Find out how farmers these days are "going green" by turning cow poop into power! Using a manure digester, cow poop is turned into energy that can be used both on the farm and in the local community. Learn how it can also be recycled into other products that farmers can use on farm fields to grow crops for the next season. (created in 2009)
 

Full Circle

Talk about going the full circle! That's definitely the case at the Crave Brothers Dairy Farm. Four brothers own the dairy, and each is in charge of one part of the farm. One grows the crops that are fed to the cows that another brother takes care of. A third brother runs the cheese factory across the street that makes cheese using milk from the cows. And the fourth brother uses the cow manure to make electricity that powers the whole farm! (created in 2007)
