Probably the cutest Kickstarter yet

What good is science if it doesn’t inspire the younger generations? Not much good at all, really, which is why this fourth grade class from North Carolina is positively joy-inducing.

Known as “Aaron’s Class” out of Durham, these kids are raising money to power their classroom with green energy. The original goal of $800 would have been enough to keep their class humming with clean energy from a solar power system, but the kids managed to raise $3,515. That means their initiative will power other classrooms as well.

They’re also learning how electricity and solar and wind power work. Now that they’ve raised over $3,500, each child in the classroom can build their own wind turbine along with using the new solar panels.

If you’re a little unclear of how solar energy works, Aaron’s class is more than happy to illustrate the basics:
