Inside Education wants to help bring energy and electricity 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, and more! The Expo can accommodate multiple classes ranging from Grades 5-6 throughout one day. Ideally, we can set up in a spacious common area (i.e. gym, library, Learning Commons, etc.) and have each class come by for 60-90 minutes, depending on your bell schedule and group size. An Inside Education facilitator will set up the Expo and lead an engaging introduction, and groups of 3-4 students will circulate between the Expo stations. Each station features inquiry questions, hands-on components, and critical thinking! 

This program aligns with the new program of studies and is best suited for Grade 5 & 6. We will customize stations based on the grade level of your students to ensure curriculum connections!

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s Métis Peoples have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for stewardship of the environment, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
