Saint Demetrios Greek-American School is based in Astoria, Queens are committed and devoted in exploring and understanding the world’s current energy uses and how it is impacting our environment. As citizens of our planet, we embody the very spirit of humanity. We want to share and exchange our research and findings to inform our fellow classmates, the community, and to the world of how it effects our natural resources, economy, science and technology, and culture.

Saint Demetrios Energy Project 2012

Year 3 Under Way

  

Energy is very helpful. We use it in many different situations in our daily lives. For example, we use energy to cook, clean, see, and transport. Basically energy helps us survive.  Some well-known forms of energy are thermal energy, light energy, electrical energy, and mechanical energy. Although energy is very useful and helps people, it is also harmful to the environment.

 

            Energy is harmful to the environment because some forms of energy give off a specific substance that may deplete the ozone layer. For example, mechanical energy is used for vehicles give off poisonous gases that are used to cause global warming. Another example is electrical energy, which is used for powering the light and electrical items in a household or office buildings. This energy gives off heat that can contribute Green House Effect. By over using a great amount of these sources we are endangering our planet and ourselves.

 

            Most of these sources are harmful to the environment, but there are many other sources we can use without really hurting the environment as much. Some of these sources are alternative energy such as tidal waves, hydroelectric energy, geothermal energy, and biomass. If we use these alternative energy sources more often we might reduce the risk of global warming.

if anybody needs help, i have very important research about fossil fuels and renewable resources on my page.

Anastasia Koutavas said

at 4:52 pm on May 22, 2012

what would you choose:

Renewable energy or nonrenewable energy? i would choose both because even though renewable is better, it is easier to find nonrenewable.

Frederika Ionescu said

at 3:46 pm on May 23, 2012

renewable energy.

Alexia Michelatos said

at 10:35 am on May 25, 2012

Renewable and non-renewable sources is our topic.

Alexia Michelatos said

at 11:05 am on May 25, 2012

I would also choose renewable energy.

Frederika Ionescu said

at 3:20 pm on May 25, 2012

i agree with you. the world should start using renewable energy!!!

yianni do you want to make a music or interview video????? if we do renewable resources we have to do how the fossil fuels and other nonrenewable resources.Fossil fuels are fuels formed by natural processes such as anaerobic decomposition of buried dead organisms. The age of the organisms and their resulting fossil fuels is typically millions of years, and sometimes exceeds 650 million years. Fossil fuels contain high percentages of carbon and include coal, petroleum, and natural gas.They range from volatile materials with low carbon:hydrogen ratios like methane, to liquid petroleum to nonvolatile materials composed of almost pure carbon, like anthracite coal. Methane can be found in hydrocarbon fields, alone, associated with oil, or in the form of methane clathrates.we have to talk about all the oils and dangers of oil spills too. i would prefer to make a music and interview because we could interview very smart people. such as our aunts and uncles.

my group, when can we do the project today?

George Kastanas said

at 1:33 pm on May 30, 2012

if you want lights for outside of your house at night you can charge them using solar panels and a timer and when it becomes night out to turn on using the power they got from the sun

George Kastanas said

at 1:35 pm on May 30, 2012

i think we can do the project around 6:30.

Hey everyone look on my page I added the beginning to my project

Nadja Martinovic said

at 1:45 pm on May 31, 2012

If you guys want you can check out our page. We are doing renewable resources. I actually think it was cool to learn about it! Maybe you will too!

Alexia Michelatos said

at 2:03 pm on May 31, 2012

Hey guys, what do you think about non-renewable resources?

Nadja Martinovic said

at 1:23 pm on Jun 1, 2012

despina, lets talk about our props for the skit!

Nadja Martinovic said

at 1:25 pm on Jun 1, 2012

maria, could you finish your script for the skit please?

Nadja Martinovic said

at 1:26 pm on Jun 1, 2012

I dont know, what do you think?

Nadja Martinovic said

at 1:28 pm on Jun 1, 2012

I think we should do a slideshow of pictures and talk at the same time? should we do it on movie maker or on i movie?

Despina Skartados said

at 1:29 pm on Jun 1, 2012

Okay

Nadja Martinovic said

at 1:30 pm on Jun 1, 2012

no should we do it on the mac or the pc?

Alexia Michelatos said

Nonrenewable resources harm the environment and are limited, as when Renewable resources do not harm the environment and are unlimited. Think green!
