About the Project:

The Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) Middle School Program has a college preparatory focus with an emphasis on developing core liberal arts skills in reading, writing, mathematics and science. As a Renewable School, the Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) is building a dedicated community of renewable energy educators, generating clean energy through their awarded 1.1-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system, and leveraging the system's performance data as an educational tool to bring energy topics to life in their classrooms.

In 2009, educators from the Middle and High Schools received a customized renewable energy teacher training, hands-on science kit materials to augment the school's existing curricula, and complete access to the resources available on the website.

Energy monitoring services and equipment provided to DSST has connected the real-time performance data from their PV system to the Energy Exploration Center at Students and educators nationwide can chart, graph and analyze the system's performance data for educational purposes.
