TIPP CITY, Ohio, May 26, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Eaton Community Schools Superintendent Brad Neavin announces that the school district will establish a “Green Team” of staff and students that will both develop and deliver the District’s energy education program, sponsored by Energy Optimizers, USA. Greg Smith, President of Energy Optimizers, USA, and Mr. Neavin announced that Eaton High School students who participate in the Green Team can apply for one of several college scholarships that will be awarded in the 2011-12 school year, for a total of $5,000, to be donated by Energy Optimizers, USA.
Energy Savings for the School District:
The Green Team Program, which also includes a grant for a $7,500 district “Energy Bike” and $1,500 worth of educational classroom energy activity kits, is all part of the $2 Million energy conservation project being implemented at the school district’s facilities. These projects will reduce the District’s annual energy costs by more than $240,000 per year.
Middle School Student Education and Involvement:
As part of the Ohio Energy Project’s AEGIS (Activating and Energizing Girls in Science) summer program, a team of female middle school students, accompanied by a teacher, will spend three days building an Energy Bike and learning leadership skills. The Energy Bike facilitates comprehensive understanding of the transformation of energy and of the importance of energy conservation. The students will then utilize the Energy Bike to teach the students in the lower grades about kinetic energy by demonstrating how pedaling of the bike transforms energy to electricity that can then be used in everyday life – powering light bulbs, radios, etc. The program is designed to spark girls’ interest in engineering, science- and math-related jobs.
