George Baldwin and Daniel Brigham's Debate Session Experience
The debate session at the IYEYS conference went very well. Daniel and I found ourselves captivated with the extraordinary ideas and new technologies presented by the speakers. These innovations included energy efficient buildings, piezo crystal energy generating technology, and green transportation. Mr. Clayton Ferrera and Dr. Sharon Jaye shared their knowledge of environmental issues within the city, and their stand on political, social, and economical environmental concerns. The debate turned into a well constructed conversation between our (the students) questions and ideas, and the answers that the experts had on the topic. It was very interesting to learn first hand how environmental groups are making steps to create a more natural and healthy city, and to learn how we, as citizens, can make a positive difference for the world in our daily lives.
