About

Students will design an experiment testing how a change in behavior may affect the impact of energy/water consumption. Students will apply scientific design methods to plan a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment by choosing one efficiency action or technology that they are going to implement and measure its effect. Students will formulate hypothesis about (1) how water, natural gas, and/or electricity are uniquely used at their home and/or school and, (2) what might be smart opportunities to use water, natural gas, and/or electricity more efficiently.
