We are committed to raising awareness of solar energy’s impact at UCLA and expanding its in other ways. Various outreach efforts for the 2017-18 school year include the continuation of the Greek Solar Project, aimed at introducing solar power to Greek houses, and the installation of solar collectors to heat recreation pools. These opportunities provide members with experience in marketing, advocacy, and analytics.
Additionally, the Solar Team has partnered with GRID Alternatives to provide members of REA training to participate in rooftop solar installations within underserved communities, providing support for the economically disadvantaged, while continuing to promote the transition to a solar-powered future.

Learn & Teach
In previous years, project members have participated in weekly energy-focused lectures for UCLA’s Lab School. Additionally, members participate in the annual Exploring Your Universe fair to bring renewable energy curriculum to the over 1,000 young students in attendance. Now, the Learn & Teach project is expanding its reach beyond the campus community and has partnered with LA Family Housing to bring curriculum to underserved communities.
As the project grows, Learn & Teach members will continue to develop energy-focused curriculum to mentor youth on the importance of sustainability and renewable energy.
