Athens Montessori School

Goal:

Montessori students embrace environmental stewardship.

LOCATION:

Athens, Georgia

KEY HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Used the film and guest speakers as part of the school’s weekly Friday Science assembly.
  • Highlighted a milestone in Georgia renewable energy, with the school’s new solar panels.
  • Discussed the coral bleaching phenomenon that students saw in the film and the importance of environmental stewardship in their community.

Athens Montessori School became the first school in Georgia to source most of its power from renewable energy after the school’s installation of three solar panels. After a recent field trip to the University of Georgia to watch the film, the school hosted a special Friday Science Assembly with Chasing Coral cast member Zack Rago. Students sat on the grass in front of the school’s historic solar panels and listened to Zack connect coral bleaching and the importance of youth environmental stewardship.
