In 2007 this structure was added to my old junior high school. Buckminster Fuller would be proud of this geodesic dome built on the campus of Lincoln Middle School to teach students about solar panels, energy usage and sustainability. They received a $10,000 grant from Toyota help fund the building. Quite cool! Some things just can't be learned in a science book. Back in my Lincoln days, I joined the Science Club, under the direction of Mr. Walker, and got excited when he boiled the water away from a couple of large containers and watched them crinkle into themselves. Boy, things have changed quite a bit in seventh grade science classes these days!

  1. That's wonderful!

    And I hope the kids will grow up into adults who'd consider renewable energy sources first for their energy needs…
