Learning Outside the Classroom

On Thursday, January 17th, Cyndi’s Cadua’s Communication for Business class and Tim Ruiz’s Elementary class took a trip to Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) right here in San Francisco.  They listened to a presentation called “Overview of the PG&E Pacific Energy Center” by Ryan Stroupe, the Project Manager.  He asked both classes a series of questions related to energy efficiency.  The students named the top 10 countries by population, the top 7 sources of energy in the U.S., and the top 10 areas where energy is used in buildings.  Both classes did a fantastic job participating.

Mr. Stroupe gave them a tour of the building, which is located very close to EC San Francisco at 851 Howard St (between 5th St & Holland Ct).  Inside the building you’ll find a collection of mini exhibits that demonstrate the way electricity and energy efficiency function.  It’s a great opportunity to learn about what PG&E does in an interactive way.

If you’re interested in electrical engineering, the environment, and saving energy, make sure to stop by this building!  They also offer a variety of FREE classes, including a course on lighting and energy.  Check it out!
