Webinar Description:
As power providers learn more about energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies it becomes apparent that customers also need to become more knowledgeable about traditional forms of electricity production, alternative methods for generating electricity, and the importance of conservation. This webinar will discuss Santee Cooper’s recently completed project which developed a curriculum to educate high school students about applying scientific reasoning and basic engineering principles to some of the real world fundamentals of the electric industry. Students are targeted because they are future customers and need to understand where their electricity comes from and the issues surrounding electricity generation.

The developed curriculum consists of the following materials: a teacher’s guide, student guides, PowerPoint files, and educational kits. There are 12 topics covered which range from an introduction to energy, solar and wind power, and electricity basics. Each topic consists of an interactive teacher guided lesson, but also encourages student-led exploration, data collection, concept application, and a presentation.

The teacher’s guide, student handbooks, and PowerPoint files are free to DEED members via the DEED Project Database by searching Energy X4. The educational kit must be purchased separately through a private educational services provider.
