ENERGY EXPO

Inside Education wants to help you bring energy and climate education to your school.

Our experienced team of educators are ready to energize your students with a hands-on exploration of key energy topics hosted right in your school!

We have a wide variety of curriculum enhancing, grade appropriate, station-based activities; including wind turbine models, virtual reality goggles and more – check out the description of available stations below. Each station is designed to answer a Big Question through hands-on play, problem-solving, and teamwork!

A full program includes 4-8 stations of your choice and takes approximately 1 hour to complete. We can accommodate up to 60 students at a time and multiple groups can work through the stations throughout the day. We are flexible on the format and will work within your space and bell schedule.

The best part is, just like all of our programs. we make our expos available at no cost to you!
