Science Trivia Competition!! 

  • All answers must be written in your own handwriting, with your first and last name written on your paper.
  • The web address or book where you found the information must be cited on your paper.  
  • Answers can only be submitted to me between the school hours of 7:45 am - 2:40 pm.
  • Prizes will vary by the week.  
Trivia Question!!!

**Be one of the first three people to answer the trivia question to win. Make sure to follow the rules above!!


Topics we will study for first semester:
  • Science safety
  • Scientific Method
  • Harnessing The Wind
  • Solar Energy

Harnessing The Wind Learning Targets:

  • Humans use different energy sources to generate power, some which are renewable and some which are not.
  • Renewable resources are constant and replenish themselves as they are used. Nonrenewable resources are depleted overtime and do not replenish themselves.
  • Sustainable resources are those that are renewable and have limited impact on the environment.
  • Oil, coal, and other fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources and will eventually be depleted. Nonrenewable resources also have negative impacts on the environment and human health.
  • Wind, solar, and hydro power are renewable resources, as they cannot be depleted and they have minimal negative impact on the environment and on human health.
  • On average, the United States uses nonrenewable energy sources (such as natural gas and coal) to generate most of its electricity.
  • Countries, such as Puerto Rico, where there is limited industrial and technological development, are often solely dependent on nonrenewable sources for energy, which can create added devastation after a catastrophic event such as a hurricane.
  • Wind energy is a renewable and sustainable source of energy that can be used to generate power and sustain communities.
  • There are various design features of wind turbines (blade length, blade shape, blade count, etc.) that allow for increased efficiency and effectiveness.
