Energy Efficiency Ambassadors (5-8)

In these activities, students will compare two products that provide the same function (in this case, light), but require different amounts of energy to do their job. Students will research and demonstrate energy efficiency in action and learn how it applies to different technologies. After the activities, students should be able to discuss the following: How does using less energy help our environment? What are the primary differences between compact fluorescent light bulbs and incandescent light bulbs? What are other examples of energy-efficient technologies or practices?
