The Effects of an Energy-Environment Simulator Upon Selected Energy-Related Attitudes of Science Students and In-Service Teachers.
Dunlop, David L.
This document is the outcome of a study designed to investigate the energy-related attitudes of several different groups of science students and science teachers both before and after working with an energy-environment simulator for approximately an hour. During the interaction with the simulator, the participants decided upon the variables they wanted to include in the study and to interact with each other, such as population growth, personal-energy use, and the distribution of natural resources. The results of the study indicated that significant changes do occur, and suggested that the energy-environmental simulator was responsible, at least in part, for attitudinal changes in several different groups of science students and in-service teachers. The document contains the names of people to contact for a presentation and/or demonstration on "Energy and the Environment." (Author/GA)
