. February 28, 2019.

The City of Ann Arbor has awarded a $15,000 Sustaining Ann Arbor Together (SA2T) grant to A2 STEAM at Northside for the development of a kindergarten-eighth grade solar curriculum. “This is an exciting project that will engage and empower A2 STEAM youth to think about solar potential, including the possibility of onsite solar installations,” said City of Ann Arbor Sustainability and Innovations Manager Missy Stults. A2 STEAM middle school science teacher Jean Wilson explained that the grant will fund a variety of approaches to allow students to learn about and understand climate change and engage in solutions. The SA2T program assists neighborhood groups to develop, resource and complete small-scale sustainability improvement projects in the city’s rights-of-way or on publicly owned property, including Ann Arbor Public School property and is run by the City of Ann Arbor’s Office of Sustainability and Innovation.
