AY Honors/Alternative Fuels
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.
