Description

Overview:
Project Description: In this project, students will examine the economic benefits of several different energy industries, including petroleum, natural gas, electricity, coal, nuclear power, solar power, etc. Each team will conduct thorough research on these forms of energy and then create a website, digital poster, or other deliverable that details the economic advantages and disadvantages of each energy type. Individually, each student will write a short position paper explaining which energy industry s/he believes would be the best fit economically for their state—generating benefits such as plentiful jobs, considerable capital investment, and significant government revenue. Finally, team members will share their arguments with each other, select the energy industry that the team agrees is the best fit and provides the greatest benefits economically for the state, and present the team’s recommendation. The attached project document (found in the Resource Library) includes step-by-step instructions, templates, briefings, resources, and rubrics to help in executing this project. Driving Question Which energy industry would be the best fit economically for your state, providing plentiful jobs, considerable capital investment, and significant government revenue? Timeframe 2.5-3 weeks
