We watched a few videos on The internet to learn about what Phantom Energy is. We were surprised at how much energy is wasted by electronic devices that are not in use but plugged in. Many of us have chargers that we leave in all the time or appliances that we rarely use. We learned that by unplugging these devices, we can save energy and save $$$. Working in pairs, we visited at least two classrooms our school to conduct a Phantom Energy survey. We identified every item that is plugged in and brought this information back to The Hive and mapped it, too! We collected and collated this information and returned the survey to classrooms appealing for their help to eliminate Phantom energy. Being the last day for March Break, we encouraged classrooms to unplug or turn off the power bars!
