Part of the activity Energy Resources: Primary vs. Secondary originated with Chapter 3 of Energy 101: Energy Technology and Policy, which introduces the difference between primary and secondary sources of energy. Access to Energy 101 for public school students and teachers in Texas is provided by the generous support of the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) as part of the Watt Watchers of Texas program.
Energy 101 is a comprehensive reference text covering the resources, technology, and policies of the energy sector today. It was developed from a massive open online course developed at the University of Texas at Austin. As such, it’s most appropriate for a high school audience, and all of the appropriate material has been labeled with the appropriate Texas standards.
