Science@IMSA: Carbon Footprint
Students explored their personal carbon footprint by taking an interactive quiz. They found out that if everyone used this amount of resources, it would take multiple planet earths to sustain them! With this perspective in mind, they retook the test to reduce their dependency. “We would use up all of our resources if everyone lived like me,” one student realized.
Ask your student:
What does sustainability mean? (Conserving resources / finding alternatives to make sure our lifestyle is long-lasting)
How can we lessen our carbon footprint? (Use fewer resources, local food, car-pool, conserve power, etc.)
