Ockerman Middle School was selected as the Most Outstanding Energy Education Middle School Project by NEED (National Energy Education Development) Project!
NEED is partnered with Duke Energy who provides our grant funds for our 12 Energy Teams in the district. NEED just held their end of year Youth Award luncheon in Frankfort KY and Ockerman Middle School was announced as the Most Outstanding Middle School Project in the state!
The students built an “Energy Bike” with a motor and an inverter to show how much energy it requires to turn on a compact fluorescent light bulb versus the more efficient LED light bulb. The Energy Bike was on display Maker Expo.
