IS 190, Bronx Robotics Team at AMNH

Hi Norm,
As I mentioned to you yesterday, here are some photos of students Andrew Baez and Abraham Petro as they presented the work they did for the Lego project at the YouthCan Conference held at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday April 7th. These students did an energy survey of their school, interviewing the head custodian, touring the boiler room, using the bathroom sign in sheet to estimate how much water the school uses and surveyed the teachers to learn about air conditioning and light use. They compared our energy use to that of a building at the Queens Botanical Gardens which is designed to attain the highest (platinum) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating. The students made recommendations as to how to improve our school's energy efficiency. They then created a movie documenting their research and recommendations.
