Following last week’s group program at Punahou, where they met with government leaders including USA Energy Secretary Dr. Steven Chu and Hawaii Lt. Governor Brian Schatz, students returned to their home schools with the technology tool to help them conduct social action and community service projects around energy conservation. They’re already using tablet apps like Messenger and Documents to Go to share data and insight with their program peers in real time.
