GMHS Geophysics students are dually-enrolled at both Northern Virginia Community College and GM, to earn both high school and college credits. Last week they presented a project in which they developed a hypothetical alternative energy program for Falls Church to real-world energy experts.

The Business in Education Partnership identified volunteers to attend the class, and provide input. The panel consisted of Doug Fraser, Falls Church director of building safet; Ralph Yatsko and Tim Stevens, from the Falls Church Climate Change - Energy Efficiency Task Group; Ivy Main and Richard Ball from the Virginia Sierra Club and Deb Cloutier from JDM Associate. According to teacher Bryan Harris, the students "learned a good bit from their comments and critiques" and the panelists were "impressed with how much effort the kids put into their projects and how much they had learned."
