Energy and Your State part of Cutting Edge:Energy:Energy Courses
This is an idea for a course that provides a framework to examine the historical and contemporary uses of traditional and alternative energy sources in your state. The focus provides a more geologic context on energy resources, in addition to state-specific resource inventories and potential. This course is intended to serve as a template that can be adapted to your state and incorporates specific ideas and activities presented at the Cutting Edge Teaching Energy Workshop. This idea was generated at the Teaching Energy Workshop.
