Cool School Challenge

Now that you've learned about the effects of using energy, it's time to take action and make a difference!
It's time for the Cool School Challenge!

The Cool School Challenge is a program that was started by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency in the U.S., but it has spread to schools all over the world. The idea of the Challenge is that big changes start with small steps, and that taken together, simple individual actions create a world of difference.

As a class, you will create an action plan to conserve energy and protect our planet from the negative effects of energy use. Use the links below to get the conservation started!
Each class will vote on one energy conservation action plan to carry out. The best action plan will be picked based on which is the most doable, the most measurable, and which saves the most energy. Good luck scientists!
