UCI physics professor David Kirkby and three students have designed "wotz," a mobile and online app that helps consumers understand their energy usage with games, analogies and user-friendly information. The app is one of 55 entered in a U.S. Department of Energy competition, where it has already won the $15,000 Student Award grand prize. Online voting for the Popular Choice Award is open through Thursday, May 31.
