What is energy and where does it come from? What is fuel? Where does the energy in fossil fuels come from? Students explore these questions through a series of activities involving careful examination of several fuel samples, hands-on fossil fuel chemistry and creating a model to visualise the formation of crude oil. The impact of oil spills on the environment is also introduced. Students evaluate the effectiveness of a selection of materials and techniques used to contain and clean up oil spills and land and in the water.
