In this Science NetLinks lesson, students compare and contrast different energy sources and the trade-offs of using them. This lesson is built around an interactive called Power Up! in which students choose how to power a city. They have to choose between various energy sources, taking into account the trade-offs between cost and the environmental impact of each choice.
