This project was designed for middle school students as part of a study on energy. We wanted students to understand the issues around energy and some of the benefits/problems related to alternative energies. Learners will be in heterogeneous groups selected by the teacher. Students will be involved in a variety of tasks which include searching the Internet for information, conducting energy audits, contacting NREL scientists, using NREL's databases and communicating with other students. They will do group evaluations and keep daily logs of work accomplished.
