Three Farmingdale High
School students scored third place in the recent EmPower Solar Student
The team – featuring Annie Chen, Ann Lin and Amelia Makhanlall – was honored by Island Park-based EmPower Solar, a design, engineering, and contracting company. The company held the award ceremony at the Town of Hempstead Energy Park.
The students created an interactive video, which received more than 2,300 likes on YouTube, and wrote a research-based essay that explained the environmental and economic benefits of solar power.
As a reward, the trio will spend a day at company headquarters to learn more about solar energy while participating in a hands-on experience in a real-world business environment and have lunch with Empower Solar CEO David Schieren and COO Greg Sachs.
