Students Explore Geothermal Energy

On Wednesday, Miss Clendening’s 5th graders spent the afternoon at Bancroft Elementary. Students enjoyed some hands on activities using Snap Circuits Green Energy sets and had lunch in the cafeteria with Miss Clendening’s students from across the district. George Wolhafe, Kennett’s Director of Facilities, gave students a tour of Bancroft’s geothermal energy. Mr. Wolhafe explained every part of how geothermal energy works and answered questions from students. The students then shared their research on types of energy ranging from solar energy to nuclear energy. It was a fun afternoon filled with learning!
