  • activities related to investigating how much we spend on electricity and how to save it. Problems and possible alternative activities
    • problems to get state-schools’ bill on electricity (paid by the city council) to learn how to read and understand it. An alternative activity: “reading” the school electricity meter along a period of time and writing down the spent kilowatts in a table to calculate expenses. To find it, ask the school janitor.
    • To make accurate and scientific calculations, this research should be done in months with similar characteristics (winter months, with or without holidays…).
    • Making this campaign about the electricity spent at home, not at school, or change the way children have to do the research at school (what kind of electrical devices we use at school and how long we keep them on or in stand-by. How many kilowatts they spend per hour…). An interesting activity would be comparing how much electrical appliances spend according to their energy efficiency (A, B, C…):
