Sharp announces the U.S. launch of Sharp Solar Academy, an environmental education program designed to empower today’s youth with the knowledge to change and improve their environmental future.

The Solar Academy is beginning with fourth and fifth grade classes at pilot schools on the East and West Coasts (Ramapo Central School District in New York State and St. Joachim Parish in Costa Mesa, California ), and Sharp hopes to roll it out to other area schools in the New York-metro area and Southern California next year. Sharp worked with education experts to create curriculum and presentations that address environmental awareness, climate change/global warming, recycling, and renewable energy, including solar power. In California, the curriculum is tied to the state standards which all teachers are responsible for covering, the Science Framework California Public Schools fourth grade, section 1.g.; and is flexible enough to accommodate different class abilities while still adhering to the state standards.

Sharp has operated a similar program in Japan for the last three years, and since 2006, Sharp has presented the program to approximately 37,000 Japanese school children, visiting 537 schools in 2007 alone. Program components include PowerPoint presentations, hands-on solar experiments, and videos.
