“Formation of oil shale”

Beginning as a living lake some forty million years ago, the Stuart oil shale deposit near Gladstone has had a long and fascinating life. This lesson follows the process that turns algae into jet fuel.

In this lesson, students will create a flowchart to depict the stages in the formation of oil shale. This lesson has been designed to align with the Queensland Science 21 syllabus for Year 11.
