About Us

Students in the Green Tech Academy learn about energy and sustainability as they work towards an energy industry-recognized credential through the KSDE Career and Technical Education Energy Pathway. Students develop more than just knowledge of wind and solar, but an in-depth insight into how transitioning towards renewable and sustainable energy will affect every part of our lives.

Students within the Academy are encouraged and given class time to pursue their own personal interests related to energy or the environment. Currently, we have students making their own wind turbines for the KidWind competition, building a farming robot and an electric vehicle we hope to race someday.

The Green Tech Academy makes this happen by connecting with industry partners to provide students with a diverse collection of learning experiences. As a result, our students are engaged in problem-solving and critical thinking through real-world STEM applications to build 21st Century Career Skills.
