On Thursday the 8th, AP Environmental Science students missed their fourth period class to attend an energy assembly put on by Duke Energy. Two men came and performed an improve comedy sketch using volunteers from the audience to help convey their message.

This is the first time having this group come to the high school, however, they do go to most elementary and middle schools to promote ways to save energy.

“I enjoyed it because it was very educational and the people that volunteered to participate were very entertaining,” junior Molly Coble said.

While some people thought it was enjoyable others said that the only thing good and worthwhile about it was missing their fourth period class.

“I did like the assembly because we were able to miss fourth period,” junior Joey Doyle said. “It was funny, but I didn’t feel like we learned much.”

Since this was the first time that Northwest high school was having this event offered for the AP environmental science students, the teacher used it see if this should be a reoccurring event.

“I think it’s a good way to relate what we learn in class to our daily live and to help up to limit our energy use and benefit our environment,” Coble said.

Some felt like this really connected with what the curriculum was teaching while others felt like it was an immature assembly visibly meant for younger kids.

“It felt more like we were being lectured on saving energy the same way that we were back in elementary school,” Doyle said. “I don’t feel like it adds much to our education but instead was just an opportunity for us to miss class and mess around.”

Even if people did not find that the assembly was helpful, Duke Energy was offering energy saving kits that you could request online or through the mail. These kits include a water saving shower head, an energy saving light bulb and many other tools to help people cut their energy usage.
