Help Students Become Wise Energy Consumers
Massiha, G. H.; Hebert, Herbert A.; Rawat, Kuldeep S.
Tech Directions, v67 n2 p29-31 Sep 2007
The authors of this article introduce students in their department's construction course to a variety of energy-saving practices and processes. They describe activities that could give students an opportunity to apply design methodology in the creative pursuit of a solution to an open-ended problem. An introductory lecture gives students the necessary background for their activities. After receiving this background information, students perform various calculations, complete a home energy efficiency test, and write a report that shows their calculations and discusses energy-saving strategies. (Contains 3 figures, 1 photo, and 1 table.)
