Middle school gets solar education grant

It’s all about being green these days – and it’s best to catch folks when they’re young so habits stick.

In that vein, the future scientists and engineers running around Jim Bridger Middle School Academy of Math, Science and Technology will soon have new toys for renewable energy.

They’ll get their school information off a solar-powered marquee, have their own weather station and a few solar panels, according to a press release from National Security Technologies.

The company gave a $10,000 education grant to the Clark County magnet school to support its green program.

The district’s energy manager says the marquee is the first of its kind in the district. Surely that brings bragging rights to the magnet school kids.
