1. Which renewable energy sources did you use in your car?

Renewable energy sources I used in my car were solar power and the power of motion. On the roof of
the car was a solar panel, and once the car starts moving, the kinetic energy of the turning wheels is
used to charge the battery.

2. What are the advantages of using renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels?

Advantages of using renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels are that it is less expensive in the
long run, and healthier for the environment. Renewable energy sources cause less emissions, meaning
less pollutants and greenhouse gases escape into the air.

3. Which renewable energy sources did you not include in your designs? Why didn’t you use them?

Renewable energy sources I did not include in my designs were nuclear energy and wind energy. For
nuclear energy, I figured it would be too dangerous considering the high speeds that cars sometimes
travel at. As for wind energy, I was not sure how to incorporate it into the design of the car, so I left it
out instead.

4. Do you think people in the future will have cars like the ones you designed? Why or why not?

I am not sure if people in the future will have cars like the one I designed. Given my limited knowledge
of how, exactly, cars work, it is likely that the design may not work in actuality. However, I think it is an
interesting notion for a car to charge itself from its own motion.
