MTHS Students Reducing School’s Environmental Impact and Saving $$


The Cool School Challenge is a program of the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, developed in collaboration with Redmond High School environmental science teacher Mike Town, and Puget Sound Energy’s Powerful Choices for the Environment program.

Conceptually modeled after the U.S. Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement, the Cool School Challenge aims to motivate students, teachers, and school districts to reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions schoolwide. At the heart of the Cool School Challenge is the philosophy that big changes start with small steps, and that taken together, simple individual actions create a world of difference.

See the video below to see how some Mountlake Terrace High School students are trying to reduce the school’s impact on the environment.
