Students Install 20 kW Solar Array to Power WBHS Science Department, September 24, 2018

WBHS-Boggs School Collaborative Energy Grant

Having already solar powered the WBHS science department, the WB EARTH Club collaborated with Boggs Students on energy efficiency projects and provided over $2000 grant support for 3rd and 5th graders of James and Grace Lee Boggs School in Detroit,  toward the development of their own sustainable energy project.

Boggs School students performed energy audits on their homes, wrote persuasive letters to their administration in support of solar, and received matching grants to install a 14 kilowatt array, now on the roof of their school, powering education with solar energy!

Flipping Your Classroom Without Flipping Out
Lessons Learned in a Year of Frenetic Flipping

In its simplest conception, a "flipped" classroom, is one in which lecture and homework are flipped, such that video or other media "lectures" are watched at home, and "homework" is completed in class, collaboratively with other students and teacher.

This presentation will help you learn about flipping, provide flipping hints and resources, and relate one teacher's experience with flipping an AP Physics classroom over a period of two years.
