Energy Action Month is a national campaign to raise awareness of the prevalence of energy in all parts of society – homes, schools, healthcare, food, transportation and even in the unbuilt environment of natural habitats. These are the local and national events KEEP participated in.
KEEP offers mini-grants to high school student teams that wish to reduce the carbon footprint of their school community. Each team will have a unique path towards sustainability and each team is on a different part of the journey.
KidWind is a hands-on design celebration that engages students through the lens of wind and solar energy. Student teams design and build small-scale wind turbines and solar structures at home or school and bring them to events all over the world to measure power output and present in front of expert judges. The Wisconsin KidWind Challenge is open to 4-12th grade students and educators across the state and feeds into the National KidWind Competition.
Real, uncanned, and immediate action with technology students already have at home. An ideal capstone unit for spring.
Costs covered for first 20 Wisconsin teachers to request access for their students.
