Science: Unit 1: Lesson 8 Portfolio:

Analyze and Conclude Questions:

Which renewable resources did you use in your car? My answer: I used
solar panels in my car as a way to harness sunlight and turn it into
energy and power that will make the car move. I also added windshield
wipers that harness wind and turns it into power to make the car move.
I did this because sometimes it can be rainy and cloudy, with no
sunlight. So I added in the windshield wipers that can turn windy or
rainy days into power for the car.

What are the advantages of using renewable energy sources instead of


fossil fuels? My answer: When you use renewable energy sources
instead of fossil fuels to power things, such as a car, certain gases will
not get released into the atmosphere and damage the ozone layer.

Which renewable resources did you not use in your designs? Why
didn’t you use them? My answer: Hm. I didn’t really think about this
until right now. For my designs, I mainly just used the renewable energy
sources that I thought would be very great for the planet.

Do you think people in the future will have cars like the ones you
designed? Why or why not? My answer: Well, you certainly can’t know
for sure, but I hope so! I do hope that people in the future will have
cars like the one I designed because they will help eliminate gases that
damage the ozone and they will help strengthen the Earth.
