Energy Efficiency Challenge

Many energy resources we use today are inefficient and sometimes harmful to our planet. However, increasing energy efficiency and reducing energy waste can make a significant difference. The U.S. Department of Energy has teams of scientists coming up with creative solutions to help solve the challenges of tomorrow. Our National Labs work with universities and businesses to develop new energy-efficient technologies while boosting the efficiency of current technology. Our scientists care a lot about the environment, and their knowledge of science and engineering allow them to be part of the solution.

Girls of Energy Lessons and Activities

When you look at a circuit board, what do you see? What makes the wires attach to the board and all of the electronic pieces attach to each other? This lesson will concentrate on circuits and the chemical content in solder. How is the U.S. Department of Energy leading the way for a greener future for all?
