Energy Debates...and Earth Hour!

Posted on
School:  Trafalgar Middle

In our class we learned about different kinds of energy sources. In groups we studied about solar; wind; hydro; fossil fuels; nuclear and wave energy. We used an easy-to-follow website to gather information about the advantages and disadvantages of these sources. Each group was assigned a particular energy source to defend. During the debate we presented and defended our source. The main lesson we learned was that each energy source has its ups and downs. In the end the solar energy group won the debate with their detailed facts and their ability to defend their resource and to attack others. From Hanna
