The School of Engineering and Applied Science will offer a new Academically Based Community Service course called "Energy Education in Philadelphia Schools" in spring 2020.

The course will be conducted in partnership with the Energy Coordinating Agency in Philadelphia, which provides vocational training in energy-related jobs and gives energy efficiency assistance to low-income residents in the city. Students who take the ABCS course will visit the ECA to learn about energy use and the organization's work in energy efficiency. As another part of the course, students will use information from their visits to the ECA to teach a group of AP Environmental Science students at West Philadelphia High School about energy use.
