Elfner, Lynn Edward, Ed.
This resource guide is designed to: (1) stimulate development of student energy research projects; (2) expose students to research problems important to Ohio's science- and engineering-related industries; (3) strengthen the working relationship between science, mathematics, and English teachers in promoting technical communication skills; (4) engage Ohio's corporations in a partnership with the Ohio Academy of Science and state government to provide curriculum materials; and (5) help students develop and sharpen their library research skills, particularly those in the area of energy research. The guide is divided into four sections. The first section (taken from the "Energy-Environment Sourcebook," by John Fowler) examines: the nature and role of energy; force, work, energy, and power; heat and heat engines; and generation, transmission, and distribution of energy. The second section presents suggested projects to stimulate student research on energy. These projects were submitted by individuals or industries and include background information, a discussion of the problem to be solved, recommended methodology, and references. The third section discusses how to find energy information in the library. The fourth and last section provides additional references and sources of information. (JN)
