About this Grantee

Ms. Tyvand and her partners implement “Alternative Energy Project” to develop their ninth- and tenth-grade students’ understanding of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. Students examine the economic, environmental, political, social, and medical benefits and drawbacks of alternative energy. After researching the topic, students construct water rockets and alternatively fueled model cars and create public service announcements on energy resources and their health effects. Students host an “Energy Night” at the project’s conclusion to highlight their projects and research findings.
