Troy Middle School is attempting to win a $50,000 grant through an online contest sponsored by Clorox Corp.
Steven Meyer, eighth-grade synergistics teacher, said if the school wins the grant, the money would be used to purchase equipment for Applied Technologies classrooms that will teach students about renewable energies.
The plan is to purchase kits for each of 1,100 middle school students to build a solar-powered car and wind turbine. Students would learn in a hands-on lab how wind solar, and hydro energy is generated and used to power equipment, homes and cars.
The winner of the grant is based on votes. You can vote once per day online and once per day via text through Dec. 19.
