The freshman class at Deering High School has been immersed in learning about sustainable solutions this past month, and solar power is the No. 1 project for the students. The students will be sharing their projects with the school and the Portland community on Thursday, April 14.

Experiences that students have had this past month include visiting Bowdoin College to learn how the college is working towards its net-zero energy goal; learning from sustainability experts who visited Deering to talk about what businesses and the Portland community are doing for environmental sustainability; and holding a student “build day” for environmental sustainability projects.

On the build day, students created Altoid iPad chargers to give to each classroom at Deering and three solar-powered charging stations for the iPad charger batteries to be re-charged. They have created multiple other projects around the theme of sustainability and are eager to share their work with the community on Thursday. The students will be available to talk about their projects in a gallery set up in the freshmen wing.
