Student Project-Based Challenge
EECCOA stands for Energy Efficiency to Mitigate Climate Change and Ocean Acidification. It is a STEAM competition for middle and high school students focused on reducing their school's carbon footprint or raising awareness of the importance of removing the Matilija Dam on the Ventura River. Project proposals must reduce the school's carbon footprint to mitigate climate change and reduce utility costs to make schools a healthier place.
Design and propose a measurable method to reduce your school or your home's energy use, CO2 and utility costs
Design and propose a tangible method to reduce the potable water used on your school campus, or at home
