We love our Master Teachers! They work tirelessly to bring their students’ the best education possible. When they are not working with kids they are leading other teachers through professional development in order to empower teachers to teach sustainability and energy efficiency across the state. Our Master Teachers allow Project ReCharge to provide the BEST professional development! To show our appreciation we gifted our 13 Master Teachers an awesome Valentine’s Day package including a mug, coffee, a VR Merge Cube, a reusable paper towel cloth, and of course chocolate!

We partnered with Truckee Meadow’s Parks Foundation (TMPF) for their Sustainability Week of their Student Stewards Summer Camp. This STEM based camp was a nine week outdoor camp, where we turned the local parks into learning laboratories. During the week of July 6th-10th our AmeriCorps, Delanie, and Programs Coordinator, Aimee, joined them in the discussion of STEM and sustainability. Aimee and Delanie ran many of Envirolution’s engaging, hands-on activities, including a waste audit, circuit activity & energy bike demo. We were thrilled to work with our friends and partners at TMPF and loved being able to work with the student campers, all while practicing social distancing.Read More →
