How do we create the next generation of energy users and ensure that they understand the need for emphasizing both energy efficiency and focusing on renewables? Susy Ellison, high school science teacher and 2010 recipient of the National Environmental Education Foundation’s Richard C. Bartlett Award for environmental literacy education will share stories of renewable energy projects at Yampah Mountain High School that engage and empower her students. Susy’s students have learned about energy efficiency and solar power while building a strawbale classroom, installing solar panels on the roof of the school, constructing and running a greenhouse, building ‘solar suitcases’ for medical clinics in Africa, while examining their own and the school’s daily energy use. These students are the future consumers of and advocates for an energy future based on renewables.
