Calling all SciGirls | Measure your carbon footprint

You've heard about global warming. And maybe you've heard the word "carbon footprint." Carbon footprint refers to the amount of carbon dioxide a person adds to the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.

The Zerofootprint website has a cool kids calculator for checking your carbon footprint.

Whether it's recording usage of disposable products, choice of lunch and snack foods, time spent using electrical gadgets, or frequency of showering, you can evaluate the impact of your actions on the environment.

Tell us your ideas for measuring the "eco-friendliness" of kids' lifestyles. SciGirls want to know!
