On Tuesday, January 29th and Wednesday, January 30th Julian Leon from the Vermont Energy Education Project (VEEP) visited Vermont Academy to teach students in Ms. Christine Armiger’s AP Environmental class and Mr. Nate Williams Physics classes about renewable energy.
Through education VEEP, guides students in developing a deep understanding of energy efficiency and conservation, renewable energy technologies, and climate change. They also provide ways for students to take action on the issues they are learning about so that they can make a difference.
Mr. Leon taught our students about the importance of renewable energy and renewable energy engineering through the use of model wind turbines, solar panels, and hydroelectric water wheels. Ms. Christine Armiger said, “Julian Leon, our VEEP energy educator does an amazing job explaining why the transition to renewable energy is so important to our future. His models are engaging and fun--none of our students have ever been disappointed in this workshop, in fact, they usually report it as one of the best "labs" of the year!”
