Energy Eco-Challenge at Begbie View Elementary, Revelstoke

Posted on

Students in Ms. Newton’s class worked in pairs to audit different parts of Begbie View Elementary School to see where energy was being used, and notably wasted! Students found some interesting places, like a special needs washroom that had a light that never went out (malfunctioning switch), students using power doors when the didn’t need to, lights left on in the office areas, and excessive photocopying.  Students then made posters to put up around the school that would serve as positive reminders. Ms. Newton’s class had great discussions to find positive ways to get our message of energy conservation and creative solutions across to Begbie View Elementary students and staff.
