Whitney Young High School Students Create Renewable Energy

While many teenagers spend their afternoons playing video games or plugged into their iPods, one group gets a charge from recycling waste oil to make alternative fuel. What started as a small project for a science fair is now a large scale museum exhibit. Some local students are showing how they "live green" with home grown renewable energy.

"This is waste vegetable oil. We've collected it from a myriad of restaurants in this Tri-Taylor area," said Jacob Morley, senior, Whitney Young High School. "And this is what we use to make the biodiesel out of." They say it's an easy process, but some might disagree.
