Summative Task : Designing an energy efficient classroom

Designing an energy efficient classroom
Group Inquiry

Overview

You are going to work in pairs/threes to design an energy efficient classroom. The classroom you will design is ‘budget’. The design will need to consider the use of passive solar energy.

Extension: Include other energy considerations in your classroom design.

Each group will:

• Complete internet research using the resources listed (as well as other resources you may find) to identify what factors and design features need to be considered when designing an energy efficient classroom

• Discuss their research findings and work together to agree on a design for an energy efficient classroom

• Present their design to the class describing its features.


You need to research the answer to the following questions

Supporting Question A
What passive solar energy factors need to be considered when designing an energy efficient classroom?
Factors
What design features can be used to increase energy efficiency?
How will this increase energy efficiency?
The sun’s path is higher and there are more sunlight hours during summer
Plant deciduous trees on the North and West to allow sunlight in during winter, and to shelter the room from the sun in summer
Save energy on air- conditioning.


















Supporting Question B
What other energy efficiency factors need to be considered when designing an energy efficient classroom?
Factors
What design features can be used to increase energy efficiency?
How will this increase energy efficiency?
Heat can be lost through walls.
Put insulation in the walls.
This will trap warm air and slow down heat loss during winter. The insulation will also help keep the classroom cool in summer
