Enlightening students to the green revolution is easier with this guide leading the charge. Sustainable Energy Engineering introduces students to energy consciousness, solar cooking, solar and fuel cell vehicles, and wind energy. It concludes with a Sustainable School Challenge in which students evaluate their own school and submit proposals to make it more green.
