Collegiate 3rd Graders Learn About Clean Energy

Collegiate School 3rd Graders this morning enjoyed a presentation in Centennial Hall from two individuals from Secure Futures, a solar energy company. Andrew Grigsby, Customer Solutions Manager, and Nicole Duimstra, Marketing Coordinator, helped kick off the students’ unit on weather.
The speakers presented information about solar panels installed on the roof of Centennial Hall and how they operate under various weather conditions. They shared examples of clean energy and how they impact our environment. The 3rd Graders will use this information as they design and build houses with roofs that incorporate a clean energy source and that will withstand weather-related disasters.
