Jesse Hoff (left) was among several presenters during the Earth Day observance at Cedaredge Elementary School. Above Hoff shows the heating effects on crayons in a solar oven. He also showed how solar energy can be used to power batteries, which in turn power machines such as fans.
On Friday, April 27, all 378 students from Hunsicker Elementary School — representing grades K-5 — took time out to celebrate a second Earth Day in order to learn more about energy and energy conservation, as they prepare to attend school next year in a new building with state-of-the-art energy saving amenities.
Friday's presentations included discussions regarding conservation and energy efficiency and solar energy.
