Abstract

The students of Class 9 decided to conduct an energy audit of their school and hostel building. They brainstormed on the various ways to reduce electricity consumption. Their teachers had already introduced them to energy audit forms and how to fill it. Students divided themselves into the groups and recorded energy consumed at each place. They noted that electricity can be saved by switching off lights in toilets and bathrooms in the hostels at night. They shortlisted ideas such as installing automatic circuits which can be switched on and off the light simply by clapping hand. They made the circuit and installed it. Another group made a circuit and installed light sensor for street light which would switch on and off depending on the intensity of solar light. Students used a Do-It-Yourself (D-I-Y) manual and made the circuit by using tools available in the school with guidance from their electrical instructor and as part of the project, costed the work.
