Use data science skills to fight climate change in this interactive activity. You’ll create a proposal for a renewable energy system for YOUR school. You’ll need to work with energy usage data, geolocation data, satellite imagery, and earth observation data collected by NASA. Your goal is to find out how much electricity could be generated using a solar panel on your school roof.
Estimate YOUR school’s energy consumption using real-world data
Research the solar energy potential at YOUR school using a geographic information system from NASA
Evaluate the impact a photovoltaic solar array on YOUR school’s rooftop would have on its carbon footprint
