MOLAB, INC. PARTNERS WITH RUEDIGER and GILCHRIST ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
TERRA State Grant Awarded to offer innovative after-school programs

[Tallahassee, FL, March 3, 2014] – MoLab, Inc. is proud to partner with Ruediger and Gilchrist Elementary Schools to offer a unique program entitled, Tomorrow’s Energy Auditors. MoLab’s six week after-school program begins this month and helps to promote community collaboration and allows students to solve a real-world problem.

Students will become Energy Auditors as they conduct home energy assessments, practice graphing and statistically analyze data, and brainstorm ways to decrease energy consumption as they enact a plan to save energy. Students will work collabortively in groups to compile their real-world findings. The final outcome will have both Ruediger and Gilchrist students conducting comprehensive presentations for their families, teachers, and the general public at their respective schools. Working side-by-side with MoLab educators and green business entities like Independent Green Technologies, students will gain first-hand knowledge of the technologies being utilized today, learn how those technologies can be implemented, and understand the value of doing their part.

“We are excited to partner with MoLab,” said Principal Solz from Gilchrist Elementary, “it’s hands-on programs such as these that help engage our students to learn about the sciences.” Principal Stephens from Ruediger Elementary said, “I like how cross-disciplinary MoLab’s Tomorrow’s Energy Auditors is and how it demonstrates the link between learning and implementing.”

Founders Aimee Hills and Trish A. Hanson are thrilled to collaborate with Ruediger and Gilchrist Elementary Schools.  MoLab’s project-based programs provide resources that cultivate and inspire a greater understanding of the role of sciences in our world and are based on equal access to hands-on science education and expertise – creatively and positively affecting those MoLab serves.
