Research, Compare and Predict Energy-Generation Trends

Ben Cohen’s living environment classes are taking a critical look at today’s technologies. His students are researching technologies of the past and of today (i.e  wind, solar, hydro, geothermal, fossil fuels, nuclear power, ethanol, bio-diesel, nanotechnology, energy efficiency/conservation.) Through periodic review of student work, the students are learning valuable skills that will benefit their educational futures. They are learning how to find and sort information to reveal what is relevant, and they are honing their critical thinking skills. In addition, through their poster displays and in-class presentations, they are developing graphic display and public speaking skills.
