EE Week increases the educational impact of Earth Day by creating a full week of educational preparation, learning, and activities in K-12 classrooms, nature centers, zoos, museums, and aquariums.

In terms of monitoring environmental efforts in the tech world, we came across a wireless-sensor start-up called Arch Rock who launched its Energy Optimizer product line today, which combines Internet Protocol-based sensors with server software for collecting and analyzing energy data for use in commercial buildings.

The company makes a sensor for electricity, and another that measures flow rates for water and gas, as well as light, air temperature, and humidity.
