Efficiency in our City

Today, Malique, Dani, Antoine, Kamaya, and I were in charge of making houses. While we were making houses, we kept color reflectivity in mind. Albedo is the reflectivity of an object. Since we knew that the albedo of the color white is low, we planned to make that the color, of the roof. Unfortunately, we were not able to make the roof white today because of time. A pro of low albedo colors on roofs is that it can reflect the sun’s harmful rays off of the building which cools up the building and they do not have to use too much energy for air conditioners and/or fans which helps contribute to saving energy. Other than not being able to finish, today was a very fun day.
