The world is moving away from oil and coal as fuel sources. Learn about the non-traditional fuel sources that can be used to power our homes, vehicles, and industries. Alternative fuels can lower emissions and are becoming more and more cost-competitive.

The Challenging Part

The most challenging requirement of this honor is probably this:

10. Do two of the following individually or as a group:

a. Visit a facility that produces an alternative fuel of your choice. Prepare and give an oral presentation on your activity.

b. Create a science project demonstration that illustrates how an alternative fuel can be used.

c. Have someone who works in the alternative fuels industry come and speak to you or your group.

d. Calculate and demonstrate cost savings for modern alternative fuel/hybrid vehicles. Demonstrate your finding through a presentation, display or verbal report.
