Students enrolled in Energy for the Future are engaged in a sustained investigation of evolving energy sources. Energy for the Future brings Interdistrict Teams together to explore energy myths, nuclear power technology/controversy, solar photovoltaics, wind turbines and other emerging technologies, while they design and construct their own energy models – such as solar ovens and cars that must meet certain performance criteria. Students connect with diverse groups of peers from other districts, while improving their academic skills.
Benefits: Students boost their academic skills and increase their understanding and awareness of diversity by working with their peers from other districts during this highly engaging program. Students explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related careers and potential new sources of energy for our nation.
