'Rolling up their sleeves': Tacoma students work to bring solar panels to Jason Lee Middle School

TACOMA, Wash. -- Three Tacoma students are working to create change by installing solar panels at Jason Lee Middle School. The students want to do their part to save the planet.

Annie Son is a ninth-grader at Stadium High School.

“We’re the future, so we need to step up and make change right now," Son said.

To do that, she and her classmates had to convince people in high places.

“While we know that solar panels might not be suitable for every school in Washington, schools that are fit for solar panels can compensate,” Sammy Firkins said during a presentation at the governor’s STEM Education Innovation Alliance meeting at the Washington state capitol.

Annie and Sammy, a ninth-grader at Tacoma School of the Arts, teamed up with Gwen Newport, a ninth-grader at Stadium High School and teacher Kathleen Hall to get their school district prioritizing green energy by installing solar panels.
