Title: Advanced Transportation Technology - Science Modules
Url: http://csats.psu.edu/GREATT/lessons.cfm?pagetitle=Teachers
Publisher: Pennsylvania State University
Description: With support from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, GREATT and CSATS have developed a number of transportation-related instructional modules suitable for middle and high school.
Examples include:

Fuel Cells
Watch as a reversible fuel cell powers a car using only water! This activity will help demystify the science behind fuel cells and dispel their high-tech aura. Students will make sense of the fuel cell they see operating by learning about hydrolysis and reverse hydrolysis, viewing online animated tutorials, and reading about their history. Chemistry: Multiple Class Periods

Properties of Metals
Who would travel on a bridge that bends under the weight of the automobiles that traverse it? In this activity, students learn the importance of analyzing properties of materials. They learn to use Youngs Modulus of Elasticity equation and devise an experiment to compare the strengths of different types of metals. Physics: Multiple class periods

MERC Online Reviewer Comments: The material presents a well documented set of laboratory experiments to illustrate basic concepts for automotive transport systems, although many of these could be used for other purposes.
