Drive the Way Life Moves
Drive the Way Life Moves uses the popular theme of transportation - and automobiles in particular - to provide real-life examples of the use and impact of petroleum resources in our daily lives. The activities explore petroleum's role in a motor vehicle's full life cycle and provide students with opportunities to investigate how science and technology are applied in vehicle design, production and operation. The resource also encourages students to identify and weight the personal, social, economic and environmental costs and benefits of automobile use, and explore alternatives to personal vehicles.
