Sustainable energy, Energy curriculum, Energy concepts
Fueling Our Future: Exploring Sustainable Energy Use begins with lessons that introduce students to foundational energy concepts. The lessons then begin to focus more specifically on topics like energy access and transportation fuels. The unit culminates with an aviation-focused performance-based assessment that is integrated into the final three lessons.
This unit was designed to contribute to the educational mission of the Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance to strengthen the overall scientific literacy of students with respect to biofuels. The pre and post assessment can be administered before and after this unit to measure knowledge and personal attitudes about energy consumption.
