Renewable & Alternative Energy

Natural energy captured and used by residential structures


Mr. Schweizer

Project Overview

You will be researching and identifying ways that residential structures capture natural energy flows and use it to reduce traditional energy consumption. A topic will be selected and groups will create a presentation that highlights the potential of these resources.


Students will learn how to conduct focused research using different google search techniques. Google searching techniques will teach students how to focus their search specifically to peer reviewed articles and approved resources.

Students will create a PowerPoint presentation that is describing their Alternative/Renewable Energy resource. To complete the presentation, students will use the research question template sheet to aid them when conducting their research and filling out slides for their presentation.
