This EPSRC funded programme incorporates research groups based in the PaCT Lab, Child Computer Interaction (ChiCI) group at the University of Central Lancashire, the Advanced Interaction Group at the University of Birmingham, the London Knowledge Lab (LKL) at IoE and Birkbeck and the Future Interactive Technology Lab at Swansea University. This research aims to investigate, develop, and evaluate mobile solutions to reduce teenage energy use. It actively involves teenagers in the project as design informants, evaluators and researchers. PaCT Lab role is to investigate teenagers’ understanding and attitudes towards energy saving:
- Determine appropriate metrics for evaluating changes in teenage perceptions and behaviour in relation to energy use
- Discover what teenagers think about energy
- Discover the extent to which teenagers can participate as researchers.
