Gainesville Moms

A place for moms to connect

On June 10, 2010 from 10:00am-2:00pm, 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. Several
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 students 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. For more information please contact Karen Porter at (352) 337-0686.

Loga Springs Academy is located at 931 NE 16th Avenue, Gainesville, FL
