OUR Schools

Environmental STEM Education for Schools

greeNEWit’s OUR Schools Program allows students to receive free energy education at elementary schools in Maryland, while raising money and empowering the school and community to take action toward reducing its carbon footprint. greeNEWit’s OUR School Program includes three main components listed below.

Energy Savings Partnership

Earn money for your school, club, or PTA by participating in an Energy Savings Fundraiser where families receive discounted or no-cost energy efficiency services and earn a portion of the proceeds towards your school.

The Presentation

Energy Detectives from greeNEWit provide free Green Schools assemblies on the importance of STEM as it relates to various aspects of environmental sustainability, including energy, water, food, and waste.

STEM Nights

Students and families participate in after-school STEM programming featuring hands-on activities that dive deeper into topics related to energy efficiency and renewable energy, along with sustainable food and waste.
