Modern Marvels on The History Channel: Renewable Energy

As more and more people become concerned about the world's dependency
on a limited supply of petroleum, determining viable new sources of
energy has become increasingly important. This episode in the Modern
Marvels series introduces viewers to the rapidly evolving technologies
that harness renewable energy. This one hour episode examines the ways
air, water, earth, and fire can be transformed into clean, plausible
sources of heat, electricity, and even automobile fuel. Using
commentary from scientists and research experts, this program takes an
in-depth look at the most proven and reliable sources of energy they
have found: solar, wind, geothermal, biofuels, and tidal power. From
the experimental to the tried-and-true, this program introduces
students to the concept of renewable energy and the process of
determining which forms might be most useful, and explores how and why
energy sources have transformed over time. This is an excellent
documentary for students to explore the ways scientific research can
help shape the future, and the methods scientists use to discover
solutions to our contemporary needs.

Curriculum Links:
Modern Marvels: Renewable Energy would be an excellent contribution to
History, Science and Technology, Social Studies, and Current Events
courses. This program fulfills the following guidelines outlined by
the National Center for History Education: 1) Human Interaction with
the Environment and 2) Comparative History of Major Developments. It
is appropriate for middle school and high school students.
