    School Curriculums

    The University of Arizona Institute of the Environment

    The UA offers nearly 500 courses on environmental studies and sustainability that address the most timely environmental issues.  Many courses provide opportunities for field research, giving students hands-on experience.

    National Renewable Energy Lab

    The National Renewable Energy Lab’s (NREL) Education Programs capture student interest and promote science, mathematics, and technology through renewable energy education.  Students engaged in science and engineering activities will have education and career opportunities in these disciplines later in life. 

    Environmental Education Exchange

    The Exchange was founded in the spring of 1991 in response to the growing demand for environmental education programs in schools K-12 nationwide.   There are a variety of programs the organization has developed and is working on to promote solar energy education.  

    Powering Our Future

     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 (one for grades 4 to 6, one for 6 to 8, and one for High School) 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.
