The Watt Challenge
Participants get the opportunity to generate their own electricity. Green Aware educators are on hand to tell them how much electricity has been generated.
Powered with this knowledge they will be able to make conscious efforts to conserve energy.
If the company employee sees firsthand how hard it is to generate electricity, they will understand why it is so important to conserve it.
