The school year is flying by and we have already hosted two teacher trainings this September. Our first one covered thermal systems where elementary teachers looked at the physical properties of insulation and secondary teachers investigated thermal conductivity. Both groups then applied that knowledge to make a house more efficient at passive cooling, which helps reduce energy use and saves money in their homes and schools. The PRC team also hosted its very first Hybrid Professional Learning at the Desert Research Institute where teachers participated in-person and virtually in our new Climate Scene Investigation (CSI) reverse breakout lesson! Teachers worked through a series of 5 multi-curricular puzzles to investigate globalRead More →

Envirolution was excited to host a group of 23 high school boys from around the Reno area last month. The young men from the Boys Team Charity group assisted with multiple material preparation tasks for programs like Career Quest, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, and Project ReCharge. As they say, many hands make light work, and these boys certainly made light work of the tasks they were given. Envirolution sends a big thank you to the Boys Team Charity!
