Congratulations to Mrs. Lyons & our 4th-6th grade students on winning the The NEED Project awards for outstanding energy education projects! Our 4th & 5th grade students won for their project: Renewton. Grade 5 combined their energy efficient solar houses with Grade 4’s Windmills to make a renewable energy village. Grade 6 won for their project: Plastic Extractinators, where they made motorized vehicles from recycled bottles to pick up plastic from water. Based on these projects, MAA was selected as Massachusetts Junior School of the Year (grades 6-8) and Massachusetts Elementary School of the Year (grades 3-5). A group of students & their parents will attend the NEED Youth Energy Conference and Awards in Washington, D.C. in June. We look forward to them representing the MAA community! ... See MoreSee Less
