Ed Hashey, Taking Action by Sharing Renewable and Sustainable Energy Resources
As a fifth grade school teacher in a public elementary school in Brandenton, Florida, Ed Hashey’s mission is to ” build an army of Urban Planners within the mindset of my students.” Ed was a huge inspiration to us- he said that rather than retiring from his work in engineering and design, he went back to school to earn a degree in education and become a classroom teacher. His project is to create a working energy research laboratory where students can build any scale model solution they want- such as creating plant-based bio filtration systems, methane manure digesters, portable wind generators, and much more. TPP funds will be used for some of the supplies for the energy research laboratory.
