We focused on alternative energies in the middle part of the year. Students learned about harnessing wind and solar power, hydropower, nuclear power, geothermal power, and the use of biofuels.
Jeff Auberger, of Preservation Homes in Elkhorn, visited us in January to show our students how he uses alternative energies in the construction of his homes. He brought along some alternative building materials, blueprints, and presented photos of the types of homes he builds.
At the end of his presentation, he even gave away a water-saving shower head! Blake was the lucky winner.
We want to give sincere thanks to Jeff for taking the time to talk with our students. His passion and enthusiasm for building greener homes made for a great presentation!
