Aged 12 – 18? Share your thoughts on the impact of EB

Bendigo-based Energy Breakthrough student, Hugh, is running a survey as part of his Year 12 VCE Extended Investigation Project. To help Hugh out, he's seeking survey responses from 12 - 18 year olds who have participated in the Energy Breakthrough in the past. We here at the Energy Breakthrough LOVE helping students' learning, so if you're aged between 12 and 18 (or know some students who are!), please take the time help out Hugh.
