Partnership provides momentum for alternative energy workshop

Four SCE professors formed the UMKC E-Save through Automation and Education team which proposed and helped implement alternative-energy-focused projects envisioned by Paseo Academy high school students. According to the UMKC Today article, a partnership with KCP&L (Kansas City Power and Light) resulted in Paseo students having “access to the resources of the area’s major energy provider and the know-how of SCE professors and college students.” These were used by Paseo student teams when designing and creating the alternative energy projects which they presented at a day-long competition held on March 20.
