Energy conservation is explored through interacting with features and displays at the ecohouse. We will investigate energy usage in everyday life, at home and school.
Students will investigate air quality (using our hand held air monitor), and how their daily lives affect it. Students will experiment with our Raingers House Models, to see how simple technologies can affect stormwater management at home.
Students will reflect on the interconnected systems of living things and learn the detriments that humans can create to these systems: from introduction of non-native plant species, to monoculture farms, and habitat destruction.
Students will learn the importance of preventing pollution and various water conserving technologies and practices, as well what they can do to conserve water.
Inside and outside the ecohouse, students will be exposed to water and energy saving technologies encouraged to discover ways of conserving water and energy in their own homes and at school.
