This Challenge is a Fun Way for Kids Grades 3-8 to Learn About Energy Conservation
Sponsored by the US Department of Energy, and administered by the National Science Teachers Association, America’s Home Energy Education Challenge gives students the chance to LEARN about energy, DEVELOP techniques for reducing energy consumption, and SAVE money in their own homes by reducing household energy use.
All students grades 3-8 can participate as long as they have a Team Advisor, including:
Public and private schools
After school programs
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and other organizations
Students can also participate in the Energy Fitness Award by demonstrating a level of knowledge about energy after completing the lesson plans. Five (5) sessions are provided to Educators about energy generation, transmission, consumption, conservation, and management.
