Annual Snapshots are here!

Fresh and lovely 2014/15 snapshots. Fresh and lovely 2014/15 snapshots.

Ooh boy! The 2014/15 annual snapshots are back from the press, and they look awesome.  This year’s snapshot — our version of an annual report — is jam-packed with great photos, news bites, infographics, a super cool foldout poster on electricity, and an in-depth story on our popular and engaging Solar Challenge curriculum.

We mailed a snapshot to every school in Vermont last week, as well to all the folks on our mailing list. If you’d like a snapshot and we didn’t send one to you yet, send us your address and we’ll pop a copy in the mail to you. You can also view an online version of the snapshot or the poster.
