Generating Electricity

Theme:
Alternative Energy Sources

Duration:
1-45 minute class period per day, 2 days per week, for 3 weeks
Summary
Students will work in teams with each team simulating an electrical generating company utilizing an alternative source of energy. Teams will create a Power Point presentation to convince the legislature to invest state money for research and development of their type of electrical generation.

Rationale
Students today live in an era where dependence on foreign oil and domestic fossil fuels may not be a reliable source for energy production. Current alternative sources don't seem ready for mass use. It will be their generation that will need to develop answers to this dilemma.
