We are in the middle of a transportation transformation. The electrification of transportation represents a huge revolution in more than just how we move things. How society views transportation, energy and efficiency will be permanently changed in the next decade. The changes that exist as society pursues electric cars represent a socio-scientific issue that is fertile ground for education. There are many subject-specific connections like energy, efficiency, battery chemistry, and motion that will be discussed, but Ian will also explore how electric vehicles can be used to explore aspects of the nature of science like data gathering, evidence, skepticism, and complexity.
