Relevant, informative, fun — that’s energy education from the Ohio Energy Project.

Created by teachers for teachers, OEP has been energizing classrooms with hands-on, interactive learning tools and programs since 1984. We bring the latest in the energy field to teachers and students in a way that makes everyone take notice by working with utilities, the State of Ohio, nonprofit organizations, energy organizations, universities, manufacturers and others.
OEP energy education programs follow Ohio Department of Education requirements, making them the perfect teaching resource. We provide lesson plans, professional development – some with graduate credit – and special events and workshops, all deemed “first class” by Ohio teachers. OEP is the state affiliate of the National Energy Education Development Project (NEED). We partner with NEED to provide Ohio educators with excellent curriculums, resources and programs. The Ohio Energy Project is funded through local grants and partnerships with businesses, governments and foundations.

Our improved focus on STEM education gives students and educators a leg up.
