SRP School of Energy, Learn and Save Together

The SRP School of Energy is closed as a project this year, but Edison has benefitted from the community in energy education and conservation efforts.

At Edison we have cut our energy use, had demonstrations for each of the grade levels sharing information about energy use, worked on cutting the energy use of our technology and our 6th grade classes completed a science kit (provided by SRP) that taught about energy.

CSOs 21-22

Congrats to our newly elected CSO students for the 21-22 school year.  Edwin E. and Michael I. were elected by their 6th grade peers.

They will represent Edison in the CSO program with the AZ Sci-Tech program to increase STEM opportunities and awareness.

CSO- Chief Science Officer

Our CSO election is complete. Evelyn and Christian were elected to represent Edison.  The students will attend the AZ Sci-Tech festival to represent MPS and Edison.  Elections were held for these positions during August 2020 in the 6th grade.  Our CSO position has been added to our Student Council.

The CSO is the STEM ambassador for the school and helps to plan STEM events and promote STEM learning.
