Feel the Energy

Did you know that the lifestyle of an average American produces 20 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year? That's equal to the weight of more than five African elephants! Of the 20 metric tons, eight metric tons result from electricity consumption. One way to reduce these carbon dioxide emissions is by increasing energy efficiency.

Book a Free Field Trip for Your Class

The Koshland Science Museum offers free field trips for middle and high school classes from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. These facilitated two-hour experiences are a great opportunity for students to see how science can solve real-world problems. We go beyond the “who/what/where” and challenge students to think about why scientists investigate our world and how science informs the decisions we make as individuals and as a society.
