Energy for Me
This video was shot by students from Isleboro School under the tutelage of the Island Institute at last year's Energy for ME conference held at Schoodic SERC.
(Islesboro is an island in Penobscot Bay, Maine.)
Energy for ME (a pun on maine's zip code denominator "ME") is an excellent organization, run by Island Institute and the partner teachers and schools, and they do stellar work with their various programs, including this program of energy education for island and shore-town high school students, their teachers, and parents. I'm very pleased and proud to be able to help them out, and also to involve our own students in this whenever I can.
For, as one of our own students mentioned in class yesterday, it's going to take a lot of this kind of education before people begin to figure out what to do to fix our current climate and energy crisis.
