Watts On Schools

One of the encouraging elements of initiating renewable energy curriculum is its widespread availability.  Energication began with an early post showcasing what the federal government has created. However, electric utilities, working with their local communities, are beginning to be quite the repository of well-developed materials.

Enter Watts on Schools.

Watts on Schools is an effort by American Electric Power serving customers in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana.  The web site brings together information about, and in support of, a number of solar energy systems at public elementary, middle, and high schools in their service areas.

On their site, they share an enormous collection of solar energy activities, grouped by educational level.  Here's a list:

Lower Elementary
Upper Elementary
Middle School
High School
Watts On Schools Activities

Regardless of the age group, teachers can begin to implement these concepts today.  This sort of collaborative sharing of materials helps everyone.

Energication will continue to find and share helpful resources and perspectives in hopes of furthering renewable energy education in our schools.
