For the fourth year, the Princeton Review has released a guidebook that profiles the greenest colleges in the US. “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges: 2013 Edition” is produced in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Schools included in the guide scored high on Princeton Review’s “green rating” system, which [...]
This is a introduction to some of the fundamental concepts of electricity. Think of electricity like water flowing through a pipe that’s pitched on a hill. Gravity is the force that pushes the water down the pipe- this would be your voltage. The amount of water that moves through the pipe would be your current, [...]
Preserving the environment requires a promotion of the knowledge and good practices about being environmentally friendly. What better place than an educational environment to serve as a model for eco-friendly operations management? Institutions like universities have the financial capacity, and eager young student body, to promote environmental protection. Furthermore, they can enlist the volunteerism of [...]

I spoke to about 100 fifth grade students at Tanglewood Elementary in Fort Myers today. After several questions about the cost of solar panels, one student asked, “How much do solar panels cost on Black Friday?” Needless to say, my answer was prefaced by a long pause – I didn’t prepare for that one. I [...]

Colleges and universities are in a particularly advantageous position to foster sustainability in the short and long term. Their decisions regarding energy, transportation, construction and operations can have real effects on the surrounding community, and collectively, the nation as a whole. Moreover, the inclusion of sustainability in the curriculum and activities of students will help shape [...]
Today’s world is quite contradictory with many people becoming green to save the environment, those who are polluting it and the rest not thinking about saving or polluting the environment at all. Everyone decides for himself which path to follow. But first of all you should understand and think about the impact you personally are [...]
