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:

Whatever your energy needs, we've got a plan for you
Our friends at the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center and the Children’s Museum Houston have shared an activity with us that can help your children answer the question, “How do particles combine into new substances?” Through the building of models with marshmallows and toothpicks, kids will make elements, molecules, compounds, and mixtures to develop molecular
If your small business is like many others, summer brings with it a unique set of challenges. It might be your busiest time of year, where you’re moving inventory as quickly as you get it or booking up services all day long.
Like many natural resources, fresh, clean water is not in endless supply, even though it might seem that way. It’s always a good idea to use it with care to make sure we have enough.
Many Americans think of air conditioning during the hottest days of summer as a must. But air conditioners are one of the largest energy users in your house.
