Summary:The School Energy Survey is designed to give students the necessary background and framework to conduct an energy survey of their school building. The step-by-step approach guides students through the process of analyzing energy consuming appliances and systems. After gathering data, students identify energy-related issues and brainstorm solutions. Students then rate the costs and benefits associated with their proposed solutions and put together an action plan. Finally, as an extension, students can monitor the impacts of their plan over time. At each step, graphic organizers and charts are provided to help students structure their plan.
