BULLHEAD CITY, AZ – Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC) has awarded the 2023
Education Grant as a continuing show of support for renewable energy education. MEC is proud
to support local educators’ efforts in going the extra mile by using innovative ideas to help local
youth learn sustainable concepts. The SunWatts Education Grant program is part of MEC’s
commitment to our community and is funded through REST (Renewable Energy Standard
Tariff) program. Funds from the grant will be used to teach students about sustainability through
curriculums designed and implemented by the grant winners.
Educator Aubry Sterk of Bullhead City Middle School was the recipient of this year’s education
grant.
“I’m excited to teach our students the importance of renewable energy to the next generation of
innovative thinkers, engineers, leaders, and professionals. I would like our students to compete at
an international Space Settlement Design Competition focusing on using real-world, practical
application of renewable energy resources. This grant will allow us to get ‘Horizon Renewable
Energy Educational Sets’ for each of our 6th grade science classes to give all of our students the
opportunity to strive for excellence. The ‘Horizon Renewable Energy Educational set’ provides a
complete understanding of how fuel cell technology interacts with renewable energy sources to
create an entirely sustainable power grid. Countless experiments, so many scientific principles at
work and plenty of space for creativity. Thank you MEC for this great opportunity,” said Sterk.
Representatives from MEC delivered the check with congratulations to Sterk on September 27.
Educators interested in applying for the grant in 2024 can look for the announcement on the
website early next year. For other MEC education programs, including the $200 classroom
grants, please see mohaveelectric.com.
