Welcome to the Solar Tree Project: North School
It all started with a dream....A solar Dream....and a magical enchantment found in the trees.... a simple e-mail communication between a school teacher and an artist...on opposite coasts of the US...and the SEED of The Solar Tree Project found a home... and germinated......nurtured by the hopes and dreams of children of North School...the support of administration, teachers..and parents .....it grew...and grew...into a project with intentions to erect Solar trees all over the GLOBE!
The students of the Solar Tree Club at North Hillsborough Elementary School and students of Ms. Ping and Ms. Bautista’s Enrichment Program will collaborate with famous artist, and sculptor Mr. Rein Triefeldt, to erect the first ever... Solar Kinetic Sculpture Tree. This Solar Kinetic Sculpture Tree will be erected on our school campus as the product of ongoing learning about alternative energy and conservation in class. It will stand as the first major public work of art in our Hillsborough community and the birth mother of many other art trees all over the world. The Solar Tree sculpture will stand as a hopeful reminder to our community of the childrens’ hopes and dreams for a world that understands the importance of global collaboration and a commitment to a sustainable Earth.
Our dream is to see The Solar Tree Project...grow trees all over the globe. Connections for future solar tree artwork in Miami Florida, China and Japan are in the works.
