The Project is when a team identifies a problem within an building or public space in their community and comes up with a solution.
The problem we choose to address is that school buildings consume unnecessarily large quantities of energy resulting in high carbon emissions. In general, students do not have the knowledge they need to make substantial change in their schools and communities as they lack awareness of the CO2 emissions and embodied carbon specific to their buildings.
We have created an online calculator that evaluates a building's embodied carbon. Use it to figure out your embodied carbon in conjunction with our curriculm!
