Description:

The Watt Watcher Program in brief

Elementary Campuses
The basic program gets your students to patrol the school looking for empty classrooms with the lights on. They turn out the lights and leave a reminder ticket for the teacher (or a thank you note if the lights are consistently out). The students keep track of their patrol numbers; number of lights on in use, number of lights on not in use and lights out.

Secondary Campuses
The older students perform energy audits. Auditing the number of lights on or off in areas and making reports, then re-auditing on another date. Students do not pass out tickets at this level but still make valuable observations.

At both campus levels, there are experiments and curriculum available for students which can include solar power, studying the green house effect, how to read an electric meter, doing energy audits at home and many more. The entire program is free and sponsored by the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO).
