energy efficiency programs

Free Curriculum and Materials: All the training and lab materials you need to teach our hands-on science lessons correlated to Ohio’s Learning Standards. Really – all the equipment is included at no cost!

Free Professional Development: Hands-on training will boost your confidence, enabling you to change the way your students think about, see, and use energy for a lifetime.

Curiosity in and out of the Classroom: Our innovative approach connects science and energy with daily life. Students conduct experiments at school and then apply their knowledge at home and in their communities. This school-to-home/community connection inspires the next generation to be energy wise every day, no matter their setting.
