Students are introduced to the context for this unit’s PBA and its driving question, what are the most sustainable biofuels that can be produced in the Pacific Northwest for aviation? Through class discussion and a series of stations featuring different multimedia resources, students learn about the aviation industry and its use of petroleum-based fuel. Students regroup after the stations to share their findings and identify 3 main arguments for reducing our use of petroleum.

Key objectives for students
