Energy. Climate change. The environment. The economy. The future. All topics of importance and of concern for many students. The Alberta Council of Environmental Educators polling found that 70% of high school students are concerned about their future due to climate change and 2/3s of youth agree that climate change education is important in schools.

We are here to help bring these topics into the classroom! Join members of the Future Energy Systems team to learn about the University of Alberta’s world-leading research that will help Canada transition to a low net carbon economy, and explore educational energy resources produced by the program. Resources include a variety of options for students of all ages including:
-Videos, ranging from lab tours, mini research talks, experiments to try, etc.
-Activities and games
-Classroom visits (online and in person depending on conditions and location)
To make resources more useful, nearly all content comes with suggested curriculum connections.
