Abstract

This project aimed to assist Green Tech Challenge in raising public awareness of the potential of the Internet of Things for energy savings and other environmental benefits. In order to achieve this goal, we developed an educational event in the form of a festival in coordination with Green Tech Challenge, green startups, and sponsors, and we evaluated the effectiveness of the event as a means of raising awareness of the Internet of Things. We evaluated the effectiveness through interviews and surveys with attendees, and we determined that the festival was an effective method to raise public awareness of the green applications of the Internet of Things.
