Denison Students Get Engaged in YES for Solar! Education

Dr. Olivia Aguilar’s Environmental Studies Practicum class at Denison University is working with the Solar Co-op to educate YES youth about the solar panels on their YES Club roof in downtown Newark. Denison students are also helping develop a plan for signage at the YES Club with information about the impact of the 44 solar panels on saving energy. Dr. Aguilar’s class recently presented Tracee Laing and Carol Apacki, members of the Solar Co-op with an overview of what kinds of signage can be most effective, based on students’ research and discussions with YES Club youth.

 Here are some options they offered to attract public attention:

–a large and colorful tree piece of artwork with updated information about solar panel energy use;

–a national park-like kiosk with pictures and information about the YES for Solar! project;

–a flip-book with detailed facts and figures that can be shared with visitors.
