Educators

The following is list of educators who have requested and been sent a copy of The Age of Oil poster:

"I am a microbiologist by training and teach both introductory
microbiology courses to Junior students, as well as graduate courses in
microbial ecology and in bioremediation. Interestingly, in both the intro.
Micro. Class and the microbial ecology class we cover petroleum formation and discuss the concept of Peak Oil."

"I have been discussing the fuel shortage with my 4th graders. They are very interested to learn about the hurricanes and the war with Iraq and why we have fuel shortages. The poster would help me better explain it to them. "

"One of the classes I am currently teaching is
Chemistry in the Community, which has a national
curriculum and textbook. A significant part (about 6
weeks) of that course deals with energy, oil, oil
exploration and refining, natural gas, nuclear, solar,
and hydroelectric. This poster would be an EXCELLENT
resource and addition to the classroom!"

"I teach a class called "Energy: Use/Consequences" in Whatcom Community College in Bellingham (northwest corner of Wa. State). It's an introductory physics course with nearly complete emphasis on dealing with our expected energy future - which will be driven by decline of oil and natural gas. During the first introductory week, we cover (in a rudimentary fashion) just about all issues associated with peak oil and watch the EOS dvd. I'll be placing this poster in the class meeting room, and from what I can read from it on your website it will make a valuable focus for many conversations."

"I teach physics, advanced physics, and chemistry to high school students at Newman. Many of these students are reaching driving age, and I believe that it is important to educate them regarding oil use and depletion. For example, I have already shared an activity with my physics students where they analyze fuel economy vs speed curves for various model automobiles to determine which speeds are the most efficient for driving. The students were definitely interested in this activity, especialy since some of them drive large SUV styled cars. "
