Later this month, three students from the Los Alamos High School Environmental Club and a Pajarito Environmental Education Center club mentor will travel to Washington DC, to attend Powershift 2011.
Powershift is a national student conference about clean energy and green jobs. Students will attend workshops, training and regional networking sessions, as well as visit Congressional offices to speak with legislators about environmental issues.
“As soon as I heard about Powershift I knew I wanted to participate because it would be a great opportunity for me to learn about alternative energy and then bring that knowledge back to my community,” said Los Alamos High School Junior Jodi Cull-Host. Freshman Colin Hemez hopes to “bring back knowledge from Powershift that could be used to create a more efficient club and a more sustainable community. I’m especially interested in learning about energy efficiency and conservation.”
PEEC provides a mentor to the LAHS Environmental Club as part of its outreach and education in local schools.
“When I started high school, I joined the Environmental Club in hopes that I could work to the preserve the environment with other youth,” said LAHS Junior Mireya Bouquin. “So far, it has been an extremely rewarding experience.”
