About Our Efforts


Teacher Resources

Donate Now to support the next generation of problem solvers and energy science professionals. With your support we can reach over 700 students this year.

Your donation allows teachers and students across the tri-county region to access our hands-on science based energy education program.  Our lessons include technical, student-led projects such as measuring household energy use, designing and building solar cars and batteries, and testing insulation materials.  With our classrooms overfull and schools strapped for funds, many teachers are unable to provide this type of valuable science based energy education to their students on their own. We believe that all schools should have access to the Energy Education Program for free, and we provide the needed in-classroom support to make the program a success.

All levels of donations help. Follow the links to make a contribution.
