Thank you to Duke Energy, who has just provided the MCEC Solar, Wind and Watts Roadshow with a $2,760 grant to expand the program in 2017!
3rd grade students at Fairview Elementary helped us accept the grant following a Roadshow presentation this week
Dedicated High School Environmental Science students from Harmony, Bloomington High School South, and Edgewood High School are working with the younger students to teach them about energy conservation and renewable resources through unique hands-on activities.
BHSS students teach students at Grandview about renewable energy sources through solar car races.Harmony students teach students at Marlin Elementary about energy conservation by pedaling the Energy BikeThe program launched on October 18th, 2016 and has visited 12 schools, 73 classes and over 1,400 students in Monroe County since then. Thank you to our local high school students for being fantastic community leaders and teachers!
