PRLog - Sep. 28, 2010 - QA Graphics invites K-12 schools and organizations involved in sustainable projects to attend a free webinar and learn how to implement energy efficiency education and further promote school efficiency. The webinar will be presented on October 14, 19 and 27.  

In this webinar, QA Graphics will demonstrate how educational displays provide a creative and interactive way to demonstrate a school’s green practices. Maintaining a sustainable school requires an ongoing effort from the operations team, faculty and students. To facilitate this, providing education is key, and solutions like an energy education dashboard are increasingly being used to make sustainable education both fun and easy to understand.  

Attendees will learn how this technology can display a variety of information including a building’s live resource use data, interactive quizzes, environmental tips, and animated demonstrations that show how sustainable features actually work, like how a solar hot water panel system collects solar energy to provide hot water, or how  a geothermal system heats and cools a building. Case studies will be explored, demonstrating how energy education dashboards have been used to communicate resource conservation and sustainable initiatives.

“Displaying real-time building data along with education is a simple way to get everyone motivated and improve school efficiency,” said Dan McCarty, president and owner of QA Graphics. “Showing students and faculty how much water, electricity, etc., is used on a daily basis lets them see how their actions directly impact the school and promotes an environmental awareness that will be carried on outside of school.”

For schools or organizations working to achieve the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED certification, facilities can receive credit for using educational displays that demonstrate why a building is sustainable. Energy education dashboards can help achieve Innovation in Design credits including the ID Green Education credit or the ID School as a Teaching Tool credit.  

K-12 schools, architects, integrators, engineers, and anyone involved in sustainable school projects should attend this webinar to see how an energy education dashboard can be incorporated with an organization’s sustainable efforts to educate and motivate everyone to save resources.  To learn more about energy education dashboards, visit www.qagraphics.com/schools and register today for this informative webinar.

The webinar will be presented on:
October 14 at 9:00 a.m. CST
October 19 at 12:00 p.m. CST
October 27 at 3:30 p.m. CST
