Georgia Power has launched a project-based learning challenge for high school students across the state. This project, adopted from a similar challenge idea presented by CEWD in 2021, challenges student teams to discover and develop innovative ways to make their schools more sustainable and energy efficient. The challenge was designed to help students understand problem solving and critical thinking in connection with careers in energy and STEM.
Project-based Learning Challenge: Get Connected: Change, Sustain, Remain
High school teams will present their final projects in a video that is 5-7 minutes in length and posted to YouTube.
Students will solve the following problem: When thinking of making your school more efficient and sustainable, what measures would you take to make your school a responsible energy consumer while protecting the resources of tomorrow. The team will conduct research and explain how their plan has the greatest environmental impact. Teams should review the rubric as a guide to know and understand how video entries will be evaluated.
Awards & Recognition
The top two teams’ schools will receive a monetary award, to be used for STEM equipment, supplies and/or classroom materials, and a certificate. The 1st place winner’s school will receive a $1,000.00 award and 2nd place winner’s school will receive a $500.00 award. The winning teams will also be announced on Georgia Power social media platforms.
