Over the past year, the Energy Department’s (DOE) Energy Education & Workforce Development team has been working with schools, teachers, students, non-profits, and non-governmental organizations to inspire students to understand energy's place in their lives and the world.
Our efforts are grounded in seven Energy Literacy Principles which highlight the interdisciplinary nature of energy, from its physical attributes to its societal impacts.
In 2013, hundreds of new lesson plans, videos, and activities that align with the DOE’s Energy Literacy Framework have been created throughout the country. The photo gallery above highlights just a few key Energy Literacy activities and resources from this year. So take a look at the photo gallery above and learn more about energy education today!
