Description

Uncover the unseen energy costs with this Hidden Energy Costs Project, a thought-provoking resource that transcends conventional notions of energy consumption. In the realm of everyday objects, from light bulbs to pencils, food, and soap, students often overlook the energy expended in their creation, transportation, sale, and disposal.

 

This project empowers students to research the complete production lifecycle of a common good, dissecting the materials and energy involved. Students then embark on a mission to present the production steps, assess the environmental impact, and propose a re-engineering plan, aiming to strategically reduce the environmental footprint without compromising the item’s appeal or performance.

 

Tailored for middle and high school students, this project transforms students into informed advocates for sustainable manufacturing. By promoting research, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, it cultivates a deeper understanding of the intricate web of energy costs in our daily lives.
