Inside Education wants to help bring energy and climate education to your school!
The Elementary Energy Expo is a station-based program designed to introduce students to curriculum-linked energy, electricity, climate and stewardship topics in a hands-on way.
We have natural resource samples, solar demonstrations, energy meters, virtual reality goggles and more!
The Elementary Energy Expo is designed to accommodate multiple classes ranging from grades 4-6.
Groups of 4-6 students circulate between the energy expo stations.
We have 10 stations, 40-60 students (1 or 2 classes) can be accommodated at one time. Each station features inquiry questions, hands-on components, and critical thinking!
We are flexible on the format for the day and will work within your bell schedule and space.
