Hero and Project Description: 

Graves’ innovative teaching idea, “Delta High School Solar Lab,” focuses on generating community awareness and changing attitudes around the necessity of fossil fuels through hands-on technical training. Students involved in the project will design, install and monitor solar electricity using a diversity of demonstration equipment. Solar Energy Training is a unique vocational partnership with a local solar energy training center that prepares students for careers in alternative energy production, electrical engineering and environmental science. With the support of the Voya grant, the solar energy training program at Delta High School will provide opportunities for invaluable experiential learning. Graves hopes to engage students in all stages of construction from research to commissioning the system, to cultivate a real-world, holistic engineering experience.
