e3 Smart is a science-based, standards-designed study of all things energy–where it comes from, how we use it in our daily lives, and what behaviors/technologies can help us in saving the planet and our pocketbook. Our innovative school-to-home approach connects textbook science and energy concepts with real-world experiences. In the classroom, students learn all about energy science, efficiency principles, and conservation practices through hands-on labs and activities designed to promote teamwork, develop critical thinking, and spark curiosity for a lifetime of learning. Students then put their knowledge to the test at home, teaching their families and communities about the importance of energy and its efficient use.
Fuel your students’ passion for learning and empower them to be energy stewards at school, at home, and wherever else their journey takes them with e3 Smart!
Free Curriculum, Materials, and Training!
The e3 Smart curriculum spans everything from energy fundamentals to best at home efficiency practices. As a participant, you’ll receive the training, curriculum, and hands-on materials you need to bring energy science to life in the classroom. And did we mention it’s all free thanks to our generous sponsors?
e3 Smart is broken down into two grade bands:
Elementary (Grades 3 – 6): Focusing on the fundamentals of energy, this curriculum explores what energy is, why it’s important, and how we use it day to day.
Secondary (Grades 7 – 12): Focusing on energy impact, this curriculum explores how everyday energy usage contributes to a larger community footprint.
Curriculum is provided both digitally and in hard copy format, with a teacher guide for educators and student guidebooks for each participating student.
To ensure the e3 Smart curriculum comes to life in the classroom, OEP provides all of the lab equipment accompanying the lessons at no charge. Think items like digital thermometers, lamp bases, watt meters, light bulbs, and much more!
OEP’s interactive training will boost your classroom confidence, enabling you to change the way your students think about, and actually use, energy for a lifetime. *Due to COVID-19, training is provided via the Ohio Energy Project website and can be completed at your convenience. Once complete, all curriculum and materials will be sent directly to you.
Thank you to our generous sponsors for their support of this program and their continued support of energy education throughout Ohio!
