Tenth Graders Present Creative Alternative Energy Sources

As part of a Project Based Learning unit on alternative energy resources for residential establishments, 10th Grade biology students in Shayna Cooke’s class presented their 3-D designs to their classmates and members of Collegiate’s faculty and administration. The students used the processes of photosynthesis or cellular respiration as a guide and created devices that would hypothetically power a home on these products and byproducts.
“The students all went in very different directions as far as their devices, down to the size of their homes and the type of energy they were hoping to create,” Mrs. Cooke said.
