"Clackamas County students get an education in energy"
Students in Clackamas County are seeing the light, thanks to the new Youth Energy Education program implemented this past school year. The team-oriented, 13-hour classroom curriculum is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in engineering, math, science, and technology. It includes student-led projects such as measuring household energy use, designing and building solar cars and batteries, and testing insulation materials.
