On October 4, 2011, Project Infinite Green launched its afterschool pilot program at the Lemont (Ill.) High School District 210 for 7th- and 8th-grade students. Conducted by Brian Quirke, communications director at the Chicago office of the U.S. Department of Energy, the inaugural class focused on a spirited discussion of U.S. energy policy.
