Calculate Your Carbon Footprint (30 minutes) > Print/View All Notes
In this activity, students will estimate their carbon footprint using an online calculator. Have them turn to page 4 of their Engineering Portfolios. During class, assist students as they fill out the carbon footprint calculator. They will get a more accurate reading if they fill out the calculator for their entire family rather than as an individual. Afterwards, have students share their carbon footprints with the class.
