Teacher with Students

Our vision is to motivate and inspire students through hands on learning and provide teachers with the professional development they will need to make this happen in their classrooms. The presence of SSLs at a school provides real time opportunities to learn about energy, weather, physics and chemistry in a way that places emphasis on students’ abilities to make connections that are reinforced in traditional learning modes. Our vision has been validated during the past two semesters when teachers communicated to the SSL Team how much more interested students were in what was occurring in classrooms because of the experiential element of their classes.

In addition to challenging student and teachers with this new science curriculum, we intend to create greater awareness of solar energy and other renewable energies in young learners. The SSL is a segway to many new and exciting topics for science fairs, engineering and math projects in both middle and high schools. Based on the research that we have conducted, our curriculum will provide students with the correct skills to fill the shortage of STEM careers in the future.
