Electric vehicles (EVs) hold great promise for a lower-emissions future – but just how much promise? Students investigate the emissions associated with EV use in different parts of the US. Then, they learn about the air pollution impacts of gas and diesel vehicles and design a communication project to reduce exposure at school.
- Connect the way that electricity is produced with the carbon dioxide impact of an electric vehicle.
- Explain the connection between gas and diesel vehicles and air pollution and describe some solutions.
- Design a communication project to effect change in their school.
- Map reading
- Data analysis
