Supporting Local Students
SVCE is working with local student organizations, clubs and schools to continue to build awareness of the communities’ goals to fight climate change and increase engagement in the solutions.
The Education Fund
Do you have a project, idea or club that addresses climate change and expands education and outreach? With the Education Fund, Silicon Valley Clean Energy is providing funding to high school and community college student-led projects that support our communities’ goal of fighting climate change by reducing the use of fossil fuels. Projects can range from art installations and student-led events to videos, journalism projects, student competitions, robotics and more.
EmPower Silicon Valley Youth Short-Film Competition
Our climate is changing, and we are responding. By prioritizing clean energy, our communities are transforming our world into a climate-friendly one. But what this clean energy future will look like is uncertain. Silicon Valley Clean Energy invites local high school students to share their stories and solutions to climate change for $20,000 in scholarship awards. No previous climate change knowledge or film experience needed. Learn more and sign up for the kick-off webinar today!
Bike to the Future
Bike to the Future is a high school scholarship competition where students build an electric bike and participate in different challenges for over $16,000 in scholarship awards. Due to COVID-19, SVCE has decided to cancel the 2021 Bike to the Future event in order to follow county health guidelines. Visit the Bike to the Future webpage to check out the past Bike to the Future Events. Students who participated in the event engaged in hands-on engineering, environmental innovation and teamwork!
