Why Study?

Issues related to energy are among the most important concerns facing society today. The relevance of energy to students' everyday lives is readily apparent. During the lifetimes of today's students, significant changes will occur in the energy resources and technologies upon which we depend. Our reliance on renewable energy is increasing and will continue to do so.

Powering Our Future offers teachers a rich collection of interactive learning experiences that can help prepare students to address energy issues throughout their lives. The three modules were developed with input from 70 classroom and district educators. The lessons address Arizona Department of Education academic standards in science and social studies as well as mathematics and language arts.

These hands-on explorations into natural resources, energy conservation, and exciting renewable energy sources like hydropower, wind power, bioenergy, and solar energy provide an excellent tool to motivate student learning. Please join us in helping students learn about Powering Our Future.
