Edmonton Energy Efficiency – E3 –  Education Program 

December 9-10, 2015

Inside Education’s newly-launched Climate Change Education Program will build on our experience developing and delivering interactive, inquiry-based energy education programs for Edmonton area high school students as we entrench and expand this program offering to include Edmonton area junior high school students. The Edmonton Energy Efficiency education program will:

  • Build on Edmonton’s Community Energy Transition Strategy and introduce young people to Edmonton’s, Alberta’s and their own energy future;
  • Provide an opportunity for Edmonton students to explore real-world applications of energy efficiency technologies and insight into research related to energy consumption, efficiency, transportation and others;
  • Make a connection for students into the role of personal action in reducing energy consumption and the resultant greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Motivate young leaders to develop an education plan and work to implement this plan within their school

This program is designed for Junior and Senior High students and teachers in the Edmonton area. Thank you for your interest. The E3 program is fully subscribed and applications are now closed.

Process

The E3 Education Program will occur over two days – with separate programming being held for junior high and high school audiences. In addition to a series of expert presentations and tours, hands-on interactive workshops will be held for students to feel even more connected to the issues and themes. Students will also have a chance to participate in the City of Edmonton’s Energy & Climate Change Conference planned for November 2015.

Objectives

Students will experience Edmonton’s exemplary energy efficiency, conservation and renewable energy installations. These will include, but are not limited to:

  • Landmark Homes Net-Zero projects
  • The Mosaic Centre
  • NAIT Alternative and Renewable Energy Lab
  • University of Alberta
  • Blatchford Community Development
  • Queen Elizabeth High School

By investigating Edmonton’s Community Energy Transition Strategy, students will understand their role in Edmonton’s energy future today and tomorrow; 

Each school will develop an education plan to creatively share what they learned with their classmates. Format for the plan will be up to each school but may include video presentations, Powerpoint/Prezi discussions with other students, invitation of guest speakers and others.
