How can my energy home-use choices decrease pollution?
In this class, students explore how to make decisions about consuming energy in their homes. From there, activities are focused on what choices we have to reduce our energy footprints and some reasons students might care. The class explores what sectors in the US consume the most power, followed by what activities in the average US home consume the most power. Students learn how to decide what they need vs want to buy, conserve energy, and choose energy-efficient appliances. At the end of class, students are challenged to reduce their footprints.
This is a very activity-oriented class that is almost entirely indoors.
