Why My Account?
At SRP, our goal is to provide educators with high-quality information about energy and the environment that is both timely and relevant. By registering your account, you will be connected to additional resources and opportunities related to your interests. SRP will collect data on the most frequently downloaded lesson plans, and teachers with accounts will periodically be sent short email surveys to help us gather information about the most useful aspects of the program. This information will guide us in making updates and improvements to the POWERING OUR FUTURE program.
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 and address Arizona Department of Education academic standards in science and social studies as well as mathematics and language arts.
Thank you for your commitment to serving Arizona students. If you have any questions or comments about the POWERING OUR FUTURE program, please contact Kevin Rolfe at (602) 236-2798 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
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.
Classroom Outreach Presentations
SRP provides workshops and comprehensive in-service programs for Arizona educators. Our goal is to equip educators with key insights and proven classroom resources related to the water and energy industries. Educators who participate in our programs will be expertly prepared to teach students about water, electricity and renewable energy technologies.
All of SRP's in-service programs and supporting materials are available free of charge and include lesson materials and continuing education credits.
The SRP teacher workshops fill quickly! Check the registration page for open workshops to reserve your spot.
The eJourneys are interactive learning programs that explore hydropower, wind and solar renewable energies. Students travel through time to explore the technological histories that make these energies what they are today. The eJourneys are harmonious with the grades 4–6 module and also complement lessons from neighboring modules in POWERING OUR FUTURE.
If you need assistance or have questions about the programs or lessons, please contact Adam Kingery, Energy Programs Manager, at email@example.com.
