Just a little more than two days left! Constellation is accepting proposals through Oct. 1 for the 2011 E2 Energy to Educate Grant Awards.
E2 Energy to Educate Grants are awarded to projects that reach and inspire students to think differently about energy, and that align with at least one of three focus areas:
— the basic science and engineering needed to address energy challenges;
— new energy technologies entering the marketplace;
— and the expanding role of information technology in how we efficiently manage and use energy.
In 2010, 10 projects were awarded a total of $350,000 in communities across the country. Each team-oriented, hands-on project reaches at least 100 students. The awards have supported a variety of initiatives, ranging from a project that evaluated the viability of wind energy at local schools to one that designed and built a sustainable, net zero solar-powered house.
In addition to announcing the grant opportunity, we are donating $10 to USA Science Festival for every Twitter follower that retweets our message below promoting the program:

Maintaining a comfortable climate in your home is a challenge, especially when you consider the effect of air-conditioning and heating on your energy bill. Choosing the best ceiling fans for your home helps keep you cool in the summer—and even warm in winter.
So maybe we don’t yet have flying cars or robot maids (unless you count your Roomba), but if you have a smart-home assistant like Amazon Echo or Google Home—and you’ve figured out the best smart-assistant routines to make your life easier—now you’re keeping up with the Jetsons. Routines are the key to getting the most
Connected homes are the wave of the future, and automated home security systems are no exception. In terms of home monitoring or deterring crime, combining home automation and security is the way to go: you can program, monitor and control your security system remotely or by using an in-home dashboard.
