 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT CONFERENCE

 on

RENEWABLE ENERGY

was held on 

Thursday, November 3, 2016

Lenfell Hall, Hennessy Hall (the Mansion), 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Over 60 high school students from Barack Obama Green Charter School and Morristown High School STEM Program once again rolled up their sleeves and teamed with Fairleigh Dickinson University college student facilitators to construct explanations, and design and discuss solutions to real world energy problems as part of the 2016 Sustainability Challenge.

Case studies involved the renewable energy initiatives at the Picatinny Arsenal (ARDEC) which  is a premier military research center concentrating on munitions.   The U.S. military is the biggest user of energy in the country. By 2025, ARDEC's plan is to have 75% of their energy coming from renewable sources.

 

The speakers at the just-concluded Conference were Shah Dabiri, Pam Sheehan and Stacey Yauch of ARDEC. The student teams were highly motivated and engaged as they listened to the speakers, engaged in group discussions, and presented their findings of ARDEC case studies.

 

Special thanks to our funders  FirstEnergy and Picatinny Arsenal (ARDEC).

Spring 2015 Student Conference on Renewable Energy

On April 16, 2015 at the ISE-sponsored SGAP 2015 Global Leadership and Sustainability Challenge for high school students at  FDU's Metro campus, STEM high school students were immersed in a real world planning experience in which mixed-school teams designed a solar PV system for their schools 1) to increase its use of renewable energy and 2) reduce its energy costs.  Randolph High School located in Randolph, New Jersey was highlighted as a model case story.

 April 24th AGENDA

 

 


 

“Over 145 students from 4 different schools and within three counties (Morris, Union and Bergen) attended the April 10th and 24th events.

High school students liked the opportunity to collaborate with other high school students from different schools, as well as with Fairleigh Dickinson college student facilitators. All parties worked together to solve a real-world case challenge focused on the best renewable energy mix for a manufacturing facility. Students also liked the 3D copy machine demonstrations at one of the two events.”    -  Michele Joseph, SGAP Executive Director
