Nuclear Fission Power Research Project
For this project, the town you live in has been selected to have a power plant built on its outskirts. It has been left up to you to decide how the power plant will be built. You will be writing a research paper on whether you feel the power plant should harness fossil fuels or nuclear fuels.
See below for instructions on how to write your research paper...
Page 1 of your paper
Compare and contrast nuclear and fossil fuel. Must include
-Your name, teacher name, period, and due date (11/27/17).
-Clever title (something better than "nuclear fuel vs. fossil fuel okay...use your beautiful brain).
-2 paragraphs (5 sentences each)
-1st paragraph: benefits of nuclear fuel
-2nd paragraph: benefits of fossil fuel
Page 2 of your paper
Based on the benefits and risks you outlined in page 1 of your paper, write a letter to the editor as to which kind of power plant should be built...fossil fuel or nuclear. It must be based on fact, not emotional response. You may want to read further about benefits and risks using the web as your guide.
Page 3 of your paper
Create a "Website Sources" page for your paper. You must use at least two sources from the Internet to answer pages 1 & 2. All sources however must be listed on this page or you may be accused of cheating.
Proper set up of web citation:
"Title of web page" (www.websiteurlblahbla.com)
