SoCore Project Coordinator Shares Solar Expertise with Connecticut’s Youth

January 12, 2016

SoCore’s Project Coordinator, Kyle Drevline, recently paid a visit to two “Talented and Gifted (TAG)” groups at Forbes Elementary and Vogel-Wetmore Elementary in Torrington, Connecticut. The fourth and fifth grade students were amidst a lesson plan on renewable energy, and had recently completed their own research projects on different renewable energy sources. They were excited to have a solar expert visit their groups, and eager to expand their solar energy knowledge!

During his visits, Drevline spoke to the students about how to plan, install and maintain a solar project. Stressing the importance of safety throughout the lesson, he shared a basic SoCore presentation, one-line diagram and solar photos with the groups, and gave them a chance to ask questions and share their input. Teaching students on the value of renewable energy is something that is very important to Drevline, as well as to the entire SoCore team. Renewable energy will play a significant role in their futures, so it’s critical that they are educated on the benefits it can have on our society.
