Learning about energy is a valuable way for students to understand Alberta’s natural resource landscape and how it impacts our economy and environment. The Energy Education Tool Kit includes tools, activities and lessons adapted from Inside Education’s energy programs to create an immersive energy education experience for your students. This kit is split into 8 topics, each exploring a different aspect of energy in Alberta. Each topic has an introductory sheet, activities, and opportunities to “consider, connect and learn more”.

Inside Education is currently building 100 Energy Tool Kits that will be available in 2024. Tool kits will be distributed at our upcoming Energy Tool Kit Workshops:

  • Lethbridge - February 23, 2024
  • Calgary - Friday March 22, 2024
  • Edmonton - April 25, 2024
  • Grande Prairie/Beaverlodge - May 16, 2024
  • Fort McMurray - June 7, 2024

The tool kit and the workshop are available at no-cost. Click here for details.

Teachers can also borrow these energy tool kits from the ATA resource library, Calgary Catholic Schools Resource Library, Mount Royal University Library, and Devon Public Library. If you don’t have a tool kit but want to explore energy with your students, we encourage you to check out the teachers guide and activity pages below.

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.
