Through extensive testing I've performed over the last 2 months, I've concluded that the method of Low Energy Voltaic Impulse(LEVI) destroys specific protein channels along the cell wall membrane, allowing for lipid bodies (and some cytoplasmic fluids) to be secreted by the cell. By pumping this device with 120 gallons of water I was able to produce 4.35 Liters of lipid bodies which converted to 4.1 Liters of diesel fuel via transesterification. To run down 2 D cell batteries, I needed to perform this test 82 times producing just over 90 gallons of diesel fuel, and the lowest cost fuel conversion price of $0.03
With the growing importance of alternative energy sources to reduce carbon footprints, and to promote sustainability, there has been a growing emphasis on the use of renewable sources of energy like Solar and Wind among others. A good way to instil a familiarity with these technologies among people is to start young, at an age where the curiosity to try things out become the best means to learning the principles behind the technology.
With that in mind, an education company by the name of Fourier systems based out of Israel has come up with very innovative Science Kits to work…
I'm creating an environmental education program at an intercity school called DIVINE Institute in St Paul, Minnesota to reach at risk students. The program will feature a $12,000 green roof equipped with solar panels, algae photo-bioreactors, and solar heating for the building. So far, I have raised $8,000 in grant funding!
I'm looking for people interested in donating to this non-profit effort or people interested in contributing information you would like included into the curriculum, so I would love to here from you all!
energyNow, in this video segment, checks out how video games are being used to teach people about energy technologies and environmental concerns.
While gaming can help individuals learn about energy use, researchers say the larger world of networked gaming enables players to work together on real-world energy solutions. “What games allow us to do is try things, to rehearse things,” said Celia Pearce, a video game designer and Georgia Tech professor.Read More: http://www.earthtechling.com/2011/12/can-video-games-solve-energy-and-environmental-concerns/
Visiting some village schools in rural India, artist Shilpa Joglekar was struck by what she described as the "starkness in their environment" -- bare dirt lots with nowhere for kids to play. Utilizing scrap from junkyards that was plentiful in the area, she enlisted local students and teachers to build their own recycled-material play structures.

South San Francisco Unified School District Sets Measure J in Motion to Save $20 Million Through Solar and Energy Efficiency Program
South San Francisco Unified School District and Chevron Energy Solutions will break ground today on the largest K-12 solar and energy efficiency program in San Mateo County. The project will provide nearly 100 local green jobs and is expected to save the district $20 million through a 1.68 megawatt solar and efficiency project spanning 15 elementary, middle, and high school sites. It is the first use of funds provided by Measure J, a bond measure approved by voters in November 2010 that raised $162 million specifically to improve school infrastructure and enhance the student learning environment.
