About the Project:

As a Renewable School, Lake Stevens High School is building a dedicated community of renewable energy educators, generating clean energy through their 5-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system, and leveraging the system's performance data as an educational tool to bring energy topics to life in their classrooms. Energy monitoring provided to the school connected live 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.

Educators within the school 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. A touchscreen kiosk located within the facility allows school visitors, parents, students and teachers to interact with the system's live performance data while learning about the science and benefits of renewable energy.
