    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Determine if the energy in a biofuel is equivalent to the energy in the same amount of nonrenewable fuel. [E]
    Compare the burning time, heat output and carbon dioxide emission of ethanol, gasoline and diesel. [E]
    Compare the efficiency of banana peels, peel briquettes and coal in order to evaluate environmentally friendly fuels. [P] [P]
    Solar tubes vs. conventional fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs [E]
    Middle School - Grades 7-9
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Biodiesel vs. Diesel [E] [E]
    Compare a fuel cell's efficiency to that of an internal combustion engine. [E]
    Compare petroleum diesel to Diesel Secret Energy (DSE) in fuel consumption, motor oil cleanliness, exhaust emissions, power, and price. [E]
    From trash to gas: Compare the amount of biogas that is produced from different types of biomass. [E]
    Compare the energy efficiencies and environmental friendliness of biofuels and fossil fuels. [P] [P]
    How does ethanol as a fuel compare to today’s conventional fuels? [E] [P]
    Can algae be cultured to produce a bio-diesel fuel? Compare its characteristics as burn time and temperature to regular #2 diesel fuel? [E]
    Compare solar-powered lighter-than-air technology to rechargeable electric battery and gasoline power systems for cost efficiency and calculate potential utility. [E]
    High School - Grades 10-12
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Compare possible fuel sources for the amount of energy they give off in the form of heat energy and tell which one(s) are cleaner burning fuels than the others. [E]
    Determine how efficient certain biofuels are in comparison to diesel fuel and whether using new or used oil in the making of the biofuels alters their efficiency. [E]
    Create and test a vegetable based fuel that both performs well and burns cleanly compared to modern energy sources. [E] [E]
    Compare biofuels (ethanol) with bioelectricity (burned biomass) efficiency (more energy from the same amount of land) [E]
