Karrinyup Primary School
-Install hardware to monitor my pilot school in Karrinyup Primary WA. -Have the data directed to my web-hosted remote energy monitoring service. Example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbKuWjEAx4M -Monitor energy consumption and generation and display the data (must be kid friendly) -Children view the dashboard on their interactive white board and computers. -With the provided teachers plan children learn how energy is consumed and generated. -The children are encouraged to make decisions and each individual child make changes to reduce the schools energy use. (young energy efficiency consultants) -Equipment is installed to make the necessary changes. (lighting control, sensors, LED lighting, ext.) -Saved funds are used to purchase further important equipment and developments necessary for the school. -Local businesses are approached to donate monthly prizes once the school reach goals and set targets. -The businesses are given advertising in school P&C publications in exchange for their financial donations to install necessary equipment to reduce energy. -The children spread their knowledge at home with siblings and parents to begin making necessary changes at home. -Upon successful integration of this concept it is implemented in other schools encouraging them to compete with each other. -The children, teachers, parents and local businesses view their progress via a leader board on the Wecansave online platform. -In the long term this initiative will plant the seed and give them alternative opportunities to study and work in the energy efficiency field to be the solution of global warming. I NEED financial assistance for the equipment for my pilot school. PLEASE
Any savings made from the children's efficiency changes gets put back into school resources and gives the kids a massive boost of self esteem.
