Invest in a better future. Lead the way. 100% renewable is not a dream... it is a journey to protect our future prosperity. If you value education then value our educated. Imagine a world where we listen to our top students when they grow up and become scientists and mathematicians and engineers and learn to look toward the future and problem solve some of our issues using well defined and understood strategies to get there. Embrace new learning and new technology. - Facebook
