It was wonderful to attend Huonville High School today to meet with members of the student-led Zayed Huon Energy Team that won $100,000USD for the school for renewable energy projects.
The team have transformed a school building into a ‘renewable energy hub’ that shows off renewable and energy efficiency technology as well as installing solar panels that meet a significant portion of the school’s energy needs.
Through their efforts they have increased the school’s use of renewable energies and have learnt important skills in project management, science and technology, and media amongst others. They’ve also encouraged 62 of their fellow students to get involved with the project, sharing their skills across a large portion of the student population.
Congratulations to all involved.
