Technology Teacher, v69 n4 p35-37 Dec 2009-Jan 2010
This article describes a design activity that provides students with a solid understanding of the many issues involved with alternate energy system design. In this activity, students will be able to learn about electric vehicles and have the opportunity to design a way to recharge the batteries while the cars are parked in a commuter garage. The recharging process will use a renewable resource...the sun!
