Description of the DatasetThe resource consists of a handbook course accompanied with printable worksheets and science-focused handouts. The handbook course contains English language activities and open source texts and materials. It is designed to explore and understand the topic of renewable energy in the community and provide a robust framework for a renewable energy course. The course centers around the fictional town of Leinwig, where students are presented with the opportunity to contribute to the town's transition to renewable energy sources. The handbook serves as a comprehensive guide, providing students with a structured learning experience. As a culminating project outcome, students are tasked with presenting their solution in a concise 3 minute video and pitching their approach to an expert commission. This project-based learning approach encourages students to integrate their knowledge, showcase their creativity, and demonstrate their understanding of renewable energy concepts in a real-world context. In addition to covering theoretical concepts, the handbook enriches learning experiences by incorporating case studies and best practices from successful renewable energy transitions in the United States and Germany. These practical examples serve as sources of inspiration and insights for students as they explode the possibilities of renewable energy adoption within different communities. By immersing themselves in critical thinking, data analysis, and problem-solving exercises, students are empowered to develop an action plan that encompasses the key elements of economic viability, ecological sustainability, and technological feasibility.
