Renewable Energy at Winter Springs High School
The EMERGE Program has partnered with Winter Springs High School to provide a Dual Enrollment course pathway for current high school students interested in sustainability and renewable energy. The three-course sequence includes a survey of alternative energy sources followed by an in-depth analysis of residential and small commercial photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.
Faculty from Seminole State College deliver the course content and oversee laboratory assignments on-site at Winter Springs High School. Students may enter the course pathway as early as their freshman year and use the college credits earned toward the Sustainability Technical Certificate or a future degree. Seniors who have finished the three-course sequence at the high school may opt to design a capstone project in renewable energy for their final year.
