We are working with the South Burlington School District to find areas to reduce energy use (insulation, air sealing, upgrading to more efficient equipment, etc). Additionally we are working to integrate energy education into math/science/politics course curriculum. There is also the opportunity for student-led projects related to community building and energy reduction.
Here’s a great presentation about the SB Energy Prize that was used to:
- Introduce the Energy Prize to students
- Show actions that students can take at home and at school
- Share examples of South Burlington neighbors who have saved money taking these actions
Check out these two amazing videos about the South Burlington Energy Prize made by and starring South Burlington students!
