World Without Oil

Word Without Oil was a 32-day alternate reality game that simulated a global oil crisis. It is fun to look back at the archives and see how the projections parallel our current gas price hike.

Enter the WWO archive and you can jump from week to week using the dropdown menu in the upper right corner. You can find simulated videos, images, and blog posts which chronicle the effects of rising oil prices all over the USA. Fun!

Companion lesson plans are available for this game/simulation, thanks to Dan McDowell.

Wisconsin KEEP has good list of learning resources for energy education, too.
