These chapters will also help schools with on-site coordination the day of the tour. ASES will build on its existing solar educational resources and create custom multigenerational “Know Your Solar” materials for teachers and administrators to use with their students, and with the community on the day of the tour. ASES chapters will also ask local solar installers, who equipped the schools with their solar systems, to present on the benefits of solar.
With the addition of middle schools to the Solar Home Tour, more young people will learn about the U.S. energy infrastructure and the benefits of solar. Offering solar educational resources that address the full array of solar provides an opportunity for students to ignite their interest and drive solar energy adoption.
ASES continues to accelerate equitable solar adoption and sustainable living through educational and awareness building activities. With the National Solar Tour and the expansion to include middle schools this year, that goal can become reality.
