Oil refinery plant in the evening

Non-renewable Energy

In this series of nonrenewable projects, students are invited to explore the world of energy production through interactive and hands-on activities. From mining coal and uranium to refining crude oil and tar sands, students get to learn about the science, engineering, and social and environmental impact of fossil fuels. They can also build and test their own skimmers to clean up oil spills, design a natural gas processing plant, and create a model of nuclear fuel rod assemblies. Through these engaging and interactive projects, students can develop skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, and scientific inquiry.
