Stewardship and responsibility are the two core principles of Amana Academy. The title of the school's 8th grade expedition is "Be the Change". Zia, Sammy and Taylor worked with the 8th grade class to create change through sustainability by introducing concepts for an Energy Conservation Plan. The goal of their presentation was to help guide the students so that they can "be the change" when it comes to jump starting a school-wide energy efficiency program. By the end of the presentation the students were able to answer the following 5 questions:
- What is EUI?
- What is the difference between Power and Energy?
- What is an example of a Passive Strategy?
- How does saving Water save Energy?
- Which is better, a Circular or Linear Economy?
See the presentation below to find out the answers and more!
