Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

Maybe it is time that 12 year olds get more credit than they do. A group of sixth graders applied for an energy grant and were awarded almost 100k in funds to install solar panels on the roofs of their school. The electricity bills for the school will be cut by an estimated 70 percent and save a huge amount of money over time. The young class responsible for this amazing feat learned about the way our carbon footprints have a impact on the environment, and they decided to do something to help. They even called out others saying they should stop being lazy and questioning why more people aren’t doing the same thing. Alexei Beltyukov (CrunchBase) thinks these kids might be on to something. If sixth graders are capable of writing a detailed grant well enough for it to be approved, than so can other people. The energy and resources saved by solar panels are significant.
