For that reason, curriculums which are prepared according to constructivist approach should contain activities and materials to enable students to learn through exploring. In this study, it is tried to be determined the efficiency of a testing apparatus which enable students to learn renewable energy resources, energy cycle, hydrolysis of water events through exploring in education environments in the direction of teacher candidates. In conclusion, it is anticipated that in addition to its mentioned features, technology product apparatus will broaden the horizons of students in how to benefit from natural resources without damaging the environment with using technology.
