Essential Question:
"Energy and Environment - Can we have both?"

Guiding Questions:
  • If energy cannot be created or destroyed, where does it come from?
  • What is renewable energy and what are the advantages and disadvantages of different types?
  • How are fossil fuels made and where do they come from?
  • Why are our energy needs increasing?
  • What are the social, economic and environmental impacts of increasing energy use?
  • How can we meet our future energy needs?

This wiki is for students from different schools to work together on projects about Energy.

Hawkesdale P12 College, Victoria, Australia
Term 4 (11 weeks) begins on 4th October - need to finish up by middle of December.
Victorian and Australian Science Standards:"Students use everyday examples of machines, tools and appliances to show how the thermodynamic model describes energy and change, and force and motion. Students study forms of energy, energy transfer and storage. They also study the structure of the earth and geological history, plate tectonics and geological phenomena."
