Carbon Footprint tracker on UIC Blackboard

Spreading awareness of the importance of eco-sustainability is crucial, especially in modern-day American society. Having fast and easy access to a carbon footprint tracker would be a great way to encourage UIC students to keep track of their efforts to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. Adding a carbon footprint tracker to the UIC Blackboard page would not only allow students and faculty to compare their Semester footprints, but also show a graph of the activities that generate the highest amount of CO2 for each person. In order to successfully accomplish this CO2 tracker, there would need to be a team of dedicated UIC students and faculty working to maintain it. Help from people who are specifically interested in technology and/or recognize the importance of sustainability would be preferred to develop the project.

Preliminary Budget: $10,000
