Cordova trip energizes students in pursuit of efficiency project
March 1, 2023
A trip that was almost scrapped because of scheduling conflicts received a jolt of inspiration to help out a Cordova business owner.
Ten students in the Upward Bound and Teaching Through Technology (T3) Alliance programs, including two students from Wrangell, conducted an energy audit for the Orca Adventure Lodge to help its owner see where he could save energy and money.
Originally, the trip was going to involve more students and be more of a leadership conference. Since basketball schedules kept many kids from attending, organizers switched focus to be a hands-on learning project.
