In this lab students will use an internet based charting software to research topics and implications of energy on local and global scales. Students will examine the energy cost and sources of their own state (prefilled for Illinois) and analyze changes in the energy use of United States and other countries selected by student. Students will demonstrate knowledge by responding to questions and writing prompts requiring analysis, justification and evaluation.
This lab is great for high level high school students, also for undergraduate 100 level college courses.
