Bill Gates on energy_ Innovating to zero!

Bill Gates on energy_ Innovating to zero! | GEP Energy resources for the global classroom | Scoop.it

At TED2010, Bill Gates unveils his vision for the world's energy future, describing the need for "miracles" to avoid planetary catastrophe and explaining why he's backing a dramatically different type of nuclear reactor. The necessary goal? Zero carbon emissions globally by 2050.

 

 

Global Education Project, Victoria's insight:

During this TED talk Bill Gates focuses on climate change and how we can get our carbon emissions down to zero. He addresses population, services (food, heating etc), energy and CO2 usage and innovations before outlining a different type of nuclear reactor in order reach zero emissions by 2050.

A nuclear reactor that is its own waste disposal unit. Definitely worth watching.

The fact that India is working on this important project is great. This project is great in s o many different ways, it will allow India to creat jobs and boots their economy , it will also be a great mile stone in the worl of science.i think that this fusion project will also be good for the environment .

Learners consider different energy options available to communities living on Moja Island and select the most appropriate technology. Renewable energy fact cards, a map of the island, and information on the different communities and their needs are downloadable to help them.  


Australian Curriculum: Science Yr 6 (ACSSU097)

Sam Burden's curator insight, March 16, 2014 9:28 PM

Moja Island is a terrific teaching resource, readily available for teachers to modify and apply within the classroom targeting the Year 3-4 Design and Technology Key Learning Area. This teaching and learning resource is a relevant active activity, constructed to teach students about renewable energy sources, which would stem over a 2-3 teaching episode, reflecting the standards outlined in the Australian National Curriculum (ACARA), Design and Technologies.

 

Knowledge and understanding: investigate and evaluate the range of technologies, materials, systems, tools and equipment that support local community needs with consideration of sustainability

 

Processors and production skills: produce designed, sustainable solutions for design projects by purposefully planning, selecting, safely using and evaluating technologies, materials including natural, recycled and everyday household items, and tools and equipment.
