The Phantom of the Classroom

Completed

Description

We first looked around the classroom and mapped out all devices that were plugged in. Then, we used an energy monitor to determine if the devices were drawing power even though they weren't in use. We looked at how much they would cost in a year, and how many kg of carbon dioxide they produced. We decided to unplug the devices that were not being used, and talked about getting power bars and timers for other devices.
