Clarification:

In your final Genius Hour presentation, you must explain how the federal government is involved in your topic.

THIS MUST BE SPECIFIC!

For example, "the federal government gives money to it" is too general.  Be specific – EXACTLY how does the government give money?  What is the name of the grant? When was it started?  How much do they give?

"The federal government taxes it" is also too general, too vague.  What is the tax?  How much is it?  How is it collected?

"The federal government regulates it."  TOO GENERAL.  TOO VAGUE.  What, exactly, are the regulations?  There are HUNDREDS of regulations on cars, for instance.  And imports even more than domestic.  Give specific examples and explain how they affect the performance of the car.
