In Spring 2010, STI worked with John McLaughlin's "Alternative Energy" class to do an energy conservation project at Clear Creek Middle School. The middle school students researched some of our energy sources and uses. They discovered that it makes sense to conserve energy which is mostly derived from coal, gas, and oil.
The students made this video to share the results of their research. This includes research into tools to be used for part 2 of this project.
In phase two of this project, STI worked with Mrs. Spletzer's science students to use energy monitors and laser thermometers to take measurements in the school. They also surveyed faculty and staff about energy usage in the building. After analyzing this data, the students then devised an energy conservation strategy.
