Boys like toys

One group of my participants is consisted mainly from women. When I presented my project and the small experiment “Act Re.Act!” to them, they were very enthusiastic with the booklets , but not so much with the energy meter. Last Monday I presented the project to two other participants, thit time men. They were interested in the project, but when I installed the energy meter for them, then was the happiest moment for them! Switching on/off appliances, checking the energy meter, making jokes to each other about the energy they consume, competing and above all having fun!Obviously, boys like toys (and girls like people?!)
