Students ?Go Green? With School Projects



Bookmark and Share

Tea Area students are ‘Going Green’ by using hands-on projects in the classroom.

The program is called, ‘Blue and Gold Make Green STEM Project.’ It’s where third through sixth graders study energy efficiency and how to apply it to everyday situations and to their school. Students were building wind mills, skylights and water-heated models while studying wind, geothermal energy and green construction.

Teachers say it’s a great way to teach math, science, technology and engineering at an early age.

“You need to expose it to them at an early age and that keeps that interest up. That gets kids more into those technology and engineering degrees that we’re having more and more jobs open up in,” said Tea Area science teacher, Dale Daugherty.

These STEM projects happen periodically throughout the school year. Those in charge say they expect it to continue next year.
