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. 

SWBAT

  • 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.

Skills

  • Map reading
  • Data analysis
  • Communication
     

Standards

Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems.
Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., quantitative data, video, multimedia) in order to address a question or solve a problem.
