Just recently, a multi-week, cross curricular engery unit culminated for MVMS's 8th grade students with an energy summit and debate. Mrs. Fowler's science students worked as groups to better understand a specific type of energy and then presented their findings as advocates in an energy trade fair.
Following this, students participated in an energy debate in the performing arts center. Special guests from Unity College, Siemens, and ReVision Energy were in attendance. The special guests helped to judge the 8th grade debate and in the end the winning team took home a mock check for $5,000,000 for their energy company.
Here is a video of the full energy debate:
