Middle School North, under the direction of teacher Doug Shearer is chosen to participate in the Solar Schools Program. The Illinois Solar Schools and Illinois Wind Schools Program, sponsored by the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, teaches the value of renewable energy and energy efficiency to K-12 students. By turning school buildings into hands-on science experiments, this program makes science fun and teaches students how their everyday actions can positively impact the environment.
You can read the story of our program Energy Seeds from Mr. Paul Wallace, Com Ed Senior Lead.
