Summing Up Wasted Energy

Our class has conducted several energy awareness activities through the year.  Each month, a crew of students surveys classrooms to see if unoccupied classes are helping conserve energy by turning off devices when not in use.  We have tabulated the year long survey in the tables below.Image

Further, our students have examined vampire loads from three common devices: phone chargers, televisions and game systems.  Every student was shocked at the amount of wasted or vampire energy wasted by not unplugging devices not in use.
