how CLEAN reviews teaching materials
Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- Each video can complement a unit or lesson on climate change, energy and technology, the carbon cycle. Students could choose a video and explore the topic in greater depth.
About the Science
- Topics include: how different kinds of biomass can be used to produce fuel; a specially designed city car; green roofs; hydrogen fuel; microbial fuel cells; solar energy; wind energy.
- Comments from expert scientist: The Green Revolution videos are a good overview of several relevant topics. They provide useful information, highlight ongoing research, present questions that remain to be answered, which encourages new ideas. One concern is the potential misperception on the part of the viewers that the topics presented may be sufficient to solve the energy and emission problems.
About the Pedagogy
- Educator information provided for each video.
- Host for each video is an engaging young woman scientist.
