Hello and welcome to all International Student Carbon Footprint Challenge (ISCFC) participants!

It’s great to have you introduce yourselves, but I wanted to let those of you who are new to Einztein know that Einztein is full of hundreds of different discussion topics. This one is called “Welcome to Einztein,” and is for ALL Einztein members, not just ISCFC students.

To make a post that is most visible and relevant to the ISCFC go to this link:

That link takes you to the ISCFC Learning Group at Einztein. ISCFC participants should:
1) Join your Learning Group
2) Explore the ISCFC-associated Discussions listed half way down your learning group page
3) join the Discussions that interest you
4) Post your comments related to the ISCFC in one or more of those Discussions

Below is a link to a simple guide to the ISCFC at Einztein which gives you more information on how to better use the site.

Enjoy!

    My family takes metal food cans and just about any other kind of metal to a recycling center about once every two months.

    recycling is a great way to reduce the co2 that factories give off, and bikes are great for the amout of co2 cars produce. you can make more people involved in your plan like your family and friends to get a greater result. great job keep up the good work and i might try to use your plan even though the bike part is a bit hard for me considering i live im egypt. just keep it up.

    I know it protects you when your body is invaded by pathogens and can keep you healthy at times were you could of gotten sick.

    I know that the human body has an adaptive immune system, and one that is native. But what is really interesting is how the adaptive immune system work. I know that this type of immune system is driven by the lymphocytes. I wonder, what makes these antibodies able to adapt to what virus/bakteria that has entered the immune system? Does it have anything to do with their DNA or do they perhaps have a circle shaped DNA like the prokaryote (that is able to adapt)?

Hey! I’m Veronica from North Adams High School. I did my carbon calculations last week and I was shocked to see my results. I didn’t realize how much carbon was realized by purchasing things. Any ideas how to reduce my average?

    hey, look you could reuse things you know you don't really need more of, that way factories don't have to produce as much. you could also use recycable bags instead of plastic bags at the market or whatever…
  • Shaneikiah Bickham Shaneikiah Bickham May 8, 2012
    great ideas, jasmine!

    Hi my name is Hannan Hassan, but i am using my friend’s account because there is something wrong with mine. I have a very good idea, you can reduce the use of plastic bags, like when you go shopping reuse the bags more than once. Recycle things like plastics and papers.

Karly Boerger, April 25, 2012

Hey everyone! I’m Karly from North Adams High School. When I did my carbon calculations I was surprised everything was lower than the average except my transportation. Wow, my transportation was extremely high compared to the average but it’s understandable because of sports I play and living out of the city, you have to drive at least 15min. to get to anything. Any ideas on how to reduce it? Just post if you do.

  • Robbie McCormick Robbie McCormick April 27, 2012
    Karly, carpooling to school and other activities with neighbors would be the most effective way to reduce your transportaion emissons.

    I agree with Mahmoud. We should turn all lights that we don't need off, unplug all electrical machines that we don't need…. There are also so many other things that we could do….We just need to get used to that. This could really help us to decrease our carbon footprint.

    Hi my name is Hannan Hassan, but i am using my friend’s account because there is something wrong with mine. I totally agree with you Katherine, all of us our highest category was the home one. But we can use less electricity by turning it off if we don't need and also take shower in 10 minutes instead of 1 hour. Also we can close the water while we are brushing our teeth.
