Fuel is an integrated math and science course which allows us to transform how we handle/interact with our energy resources using physics and chemistry.
The course is separated into 3 units:
- Resources: Investigation of chemical reaction of natural resources and developing a cycle of regeneration from various energy sources.
- Energy: Examining the physics of energy by calculating the energy production of a home.
- Pollution: Understanding pollution by conducting a carbon footprint analysis.
Last week, students visited the Chicago Auto Show. Attending the show, students had to interview car manufacturers, brand representatives and investigated car technology for controlling pollution. This activity helped raise awareness of the negative effects of pollution contributed from the auto industry.
