The typical American uses six times more energy than the world average - and our energy comes primarily from highly polluting sources. These unfortunate facts need to change. As history proves again and again, the process of change starts with informed, energetic young people.
Solar In the Schools classroom presentations use engaging hands-on demonstrations as tools to get kids thinking about energy. We emphasize energy conservation and efficiency actions that students can take immediately. Solar panels and wind turbines are always a hit in the hands of schoolkids, and they quickly grasp the present and future benefits of replacing highly polluting sources with renewable energy.

Watch the electrons fly as Solar In the Schools brings energy into the classroom. See and feel energy efficiency, then learn how renewable energy can help. Kids love it when we put technology where they want it - in their hands. The Energy presentation is a prerequisite for all of our other presentations.
Delve deeper into the world of DC electricity. Working together, students measure power, calculate energy and combine individual photovoltaic cells to power zany electric toys.
Wind is energy that students can feel. SIS delivers an illuminating slideshow followed by a small-scale wind power generation
competition in the classroom.
