Bethel Girls Participate in AEGIS 2014


Bethel Students Complete 3-Day Event Aimed at Getting Girls Interested in Science

DAYTON, Ohio  – June  2014 – Five students from Bethel Junior High have completed a three-day program, called AEGIS 2014 (Activating and Energizing Girls in Science) that was sponsored by Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) and facilitated by the Ohio Energy Project (OEP).

The idea behind the program is to reach middle school girls early to get them interested in science, engineering and technical careers.

As part of the program, held June 9-11, the girls worked as a team and learned how to wire and build an Energy Bike, which generates electricity by pedaling. They also toured DP&L facilities and talked to women working in science-related jobs.

The girls taking part in the program from Bethel were 8th graders Abigail Cartwright, Kasie Durham, Makenna Floyd, and Tabitha Boitnott. They were accompanied by their teacher Leslie Mosley during the event. All their meals, lodging, and educational materials were provided by DP&L. The girls were also allowed to transport their completed Energy Bikes back to their school so other students can learn about electricity and energy.

Other Miami Valley schools participating in the program included Beavercreek, Dayton Public, Troy and Vandalia-Butler. This is the second year DP&L has sponsored the AEGIS event.

DP&L works with OEP and Vectren each spring to hold the Energy Fair for students at the University of Dayton. Since 2009, thousands of students have learned about energy efficiency and conservation at the Energy Fair. DP&L’s School Education Program, facilitated by OEP throughout the school year, is part of the company’s energy efficiency efforts for DP&L customers.
