Green Schools Conference at Atlanta, GA

The 2017 Atlanta Green Schools Conference addressed the school system’s social equity issues. The conference held various workshops intended for participants to learn about various aspects of sustainability. City Tech participated at this year’s conference by holding a “Solar Power Wall Models Workshop,” in which students learned how to build a solar powered wall and how to apply solar panels to them. The workshop was conducted by Prof. Aptekar, and three City Tech students; Alice Chan, Langston Clark, and Wesley Oler. The facades were constructed out of cardboard, and sunlight was replicated using lamps. The aim of this workshop was to discuss the design process for placing solar panels on the exterior of a home. Students were required to find the best angular position for the solar panels in order to produce the most efficient vertical facade. Moreover, participants developed leadership problem-solving and leadership skills through this workshop
