Is convert heat energy into electrical energy?

I have seen that the interior of cars get really hot when we close it's windows and keep it in the sun. I am thinking of converting this heat energy into electrical energy, but I don't know how to convert it.

It could be done,but at great expense,it would have to converted to mechanical energy n then to electrical energy or just used as heat in water or used to cool something else
You are reffering to a thermodinamics law.
Energy canot be created nor destroyed it just chnges states
Theres another law that basically says,you can never break even,you always lose some energy
The best way to do this is before it gets in the enclosed space as with solar power(solar panels)
You could heat water with the heat created inside the closed space but then,what would you do with the hot water.

Reminds me of the Stirling-cycle engine which requires a lot of heat to work though.

Dont give up thinking like that!
They told Tesla things couldnt be done n he did them!
The sun produces a tremendous amount of energy and there are many ways to utilize it, most if not all of our energy comes from heat,so you are in the right path I just think the idea of the heat inside the car mat not be so good.
But keep thinking!!
I think L.A.Tech is right
