OR Alternative fuels for vehicles – choose one of the following:

HOW – How are you going to find out more about your topic?

ACTION – What actions might result from your new learning?

QUESTIONS – What new questions might you have about the topic?

Make sure you include HOW the source of energy or alternative vehicle works and the advantages and disadvantages it might have (at least three of each). What is preventing this technology from becoming more widespread? Please present your work as a poster, slideshow, video, or written report. You should include at least four sources of information (References) in a Bibliography. This work is due Thursday 12th June.
