Problem
How could renewable energy sources be used to power a car?
Devise a Plan
1. Consider what you learned about renewable energy sources. Use what you
learned to design a car that operates entirely on renewable energy sources.
2. Think about the following issues:




What renewable sources of energy are available?
Which sources could be used to operate the car? How could each source
be used?
What equipment would be needed? Where would this equipment be located?
What backup systems should be included?
3. On a separate sheet of paper, draw your designs for a renewable-energy car.
Label your drawings to identify the energy sources you used and to explain how
each system works.
Analyze and Conclude
1. Which renewable energy sources did you use in your car?
2. What are the advantages of using renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels?
3. Which renewable energy sources did you not include in your designs? Why
didn’t you use them?
4. Do you think people in the future will have cars like the ones you
designed? Why or why not?
