Science@IMSA – Monday: Carbon Footprint

Science@IMSA – Monday: Carbon Footprint

Students explored their personal carbon footprint by taking an interactive quiz. They found out that if everyone used this amount of resources, it would take multiple planet earths to sustain them! With this perspective in mind, they retook the test to reduce their dependency. “Now I think I get why my dad always tells me to turn off the lights when I leave the room,” one student realized.

Ask your student:

What does sustainability mean? (Conserving resources / finding alternatives to make sure our lifestyle is long-lasting)

How can we lessen our carbon footprint? (Use fewer resources, local food, car-pool, conserve power, etc.)

Here are some pictures from their day.
