Years 1-6
What is it?
An opportunity to put your ECO group students at the heart of your school's sustainability project and see how they can save electricity and reduce carbon emissions.

This is a four-month long programme to monitor and reduce their school's electricity consumption.  Starting with an in-person or virtual meeting with our STEM tutor, who will introduce the aims and rules of the competition.  SATRO will continue to support your ECO group in influencing how the school, staff, students and the wider community can be more energy conscious and make real savings with their energy bills. 

Energy will be monitored through Powercor's online live platform which will be available to all ECO groups to track electricity consumption and carbon emissions.  

The competition will culminate in a celebration event to which all ECO groups will be invited and when results will be announced, and prizes awarded.

This challenge is open to individual schools but is particularly suited to groups/partnerships of schools who wish to participate together.
