Automotive Industry and Global Warming

Hello my name is Adam Frydrych and I’m 11 years old and my Exhibition topic is “Impact of automotive industry on global warming”.

Why did I select my inquiry?

I chose my inquiry because I did not know much about global warming and how it is connected to the automotive industry so I wanted to find more about it.

My central idea was the Impact of the automotive industry on global warming.

My lines of Inquiry were:

1.Causation : Impact of automotive industry on environment.

2.Change : Development in automobile technology.

3 .Responsibility : Partnership for change.

My transdisciplinary theme was: How we organize ourselves

My concepts were: Causation, Change, Responsibility

My related concepts were: Pollution and technological advances

My focus Learner Profile attributes were: research skills, thinking skills

My UN Goals was number 16 Responsibility Consumption and Production.             

My links to the school Mission and vision were :

The Vision statement of our school is to create an empowered, innovative and agile community of learners who achieve and contribute positively within and beyond the school.

I was empowered to be a learner as I was independent and responsible for my learning during the exhibition.

I was innovative as I found creative ways of communicating my learning – Kahoot, Making Poster, Piece of Art, Google slides.

I was agile as a learner because in the middle of the exhibition, we had to stop coming to school and start virtual learning. I changed my plans for the presentations. I was also flexible as I changed my presentation topic.

Towards our Mission:

Promote learning – I researched a lot about my Exhibition and I gathered information. I was also curious about all the details I mentioned. 

Encourage responsibility – I now understand why pollution from cars is affecting our whole planet. And I will try to do something about it.

Celebrate diversity – In the Czech Republic in my country there is a strong automotive industry so when I will be older I can work in Škoda Auto and try to develop new solutions.

During my research I found out that greenhouse gases are good for our planet but if in the atmosphere there will be a lot of these gases our planet would be warmer and warmer and that is not good.

I used primary resources:  I discussed it with my Dad because his job is in the automotive industry.

I used secondary resources: Internet        

Here are some of the resources I created to help spread awareness about my inquiry

This is an artwork I made to show the World with and without pollution.

My personal action will be

Ride on a bike more than drive with a car. And cycling is also good for your health. Support the idea of making electric vehicles and promote trends like car sharing. The same actions I would like to see also from other people.
