Abstract

The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), Costa Rica's national electric utility, supports its country's "Peace with Nature" initiative by educating the public about energy conservation. The purpose of this project was to design an educational website for ICE about clean energy and energy conservation, targeted towards Costa Rican schoolchildren of ages seven through twelve. The features of the website make use of Jean Piaget's theory of cognitive development and an analysis of existing educational websites.
