How can an energy-savings project improve education for your student?
Energia can help your school district provide a comfortable, sustainable educational environment that is conducive to learning and achieving academic success. Studies have demonstrated that improving school environmental quality increases academic performance and reduces absenteeism. Better indoor temperature control, increased ventilation and improved lighting can improve students’ concentration enabling them to excel in class and achieve greater test scores. Let your school district superintendent and school board of education know that you support their efforts at creating a better learning environment for your student.
Energia Career Exploration Program
School district energy improvement projects can be transformative tools to enhance the learning environment and the learning experience. The rise in environmental consciousness – especially among K-12 students – presents a unique opportunity to engage these students in improving their schools, minds, and the planet, but it also drives more substantial results. Research shows that when students and staff take part in energy conservation initiatives, they feel greater ownership and are therefore more likely to support changes over the long-term and adopt behaviors that drive deeper savings.
Energia STEM Scholarship for Young Women
To help enable the next generation of young women to pursue educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), Energia funds a $5,000 scholarship in each school district it supports. This scholarship fund is directed by the school district and can be awarded to an individual young woman or multiple recipients who are interested in pursuing a STEM degree program or career. As a woman-owned and led business, the Energia team is excited and honored to encourage young women to follow their passions and interests into the exciting world of science, technology, engineering and math. Good luck and welcome!More Info
