Sustainability through storytelling. That is what you can expect from Rethink Energy’s new podcast. Energy is invisible. But then again, it can be seen almost everywhere. Rethink Energy makes the invisible visible with stories from the people who take on some of our greatest energy challenges, right here in Arlington.
These podcasts are packaged in 8-10 minute bits. Listen while riding the metro, bus, or while walking home from work.
- In episode 5, we learn why Arlington Public Schools went through the trouble of building a net-zero energy school. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of Discovery Elementary School. “Our electric bills are basically zero,” says APS construction manager, Steve Stricker.
- In episode three, Patty Shields explains what a novelty she is being a woman in the home builder arena, “It is fairly unique. There are not a lot of women home builders. I can count them on one hand not using a lot of those fingers. I really only know two.” When asked if she was one of those two she replies, “I am. I want to beef up the numbers so that other women will get into it!” She opens up about her experiences building the first LEED Platinum house in Arlington, and the first Passive House.
- Other episodes look into Arlington’s solar co-op, home insulation and air sealing, heating and cooling, and more!
Each podcast episode opens a door to new ideas, new jokes, and new ways of seeing Arlington. Take a few minutes to (binge) listen and check out the episodes from our first season:

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
