Addicted to Energy
In this activity from Science upd8 students think about carbon footprints and which goods and services cause the biggest carbon dioxide emissions. What choices can be made to minimise emissions?
This topical activity helps the student to make informed choices regarding the carbon dioxide emissions of a range of goods and services through the context of buying a gift for someone close. They also look at the dilemmas facing manufacturers and discuss situations where individuals or organisations have to make decisions and possibly compromises about environmental issues.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
