Loga Springs Academy
931 NE 16th Avenue (next to Highlands Presbyterian Church)
Loga Springs Academy will be hosting a Community School and Green Building Sustainability Fair highlighting environmental sustainability and clean energy projects. The academy has recently relocated to a Northeast Gainesville location and has been working hard to convert the historic building into a
sustainable and green school. Engineering students from the University of Florida – Eric Layton and Derek Matteson – will be holding demonstrations on an electric-powered go-cart that was built with the help of students from Loga Springs Academy. Solar panels are used to recharge the electric cart, allowing students to be transported without burning any fossil fuels. There will be a display showing samples of fuel grade biodiesel, which was made at the academy. The students of Loga Springs Academy will demonstrate a wind turbine that they built over the course of the summer. This wind turbine is able to power electronic appliances, such as a radio or a laptop computer.
All ages are welcome to come and learn more about clean energy and community sustainability.
