ACEE kicked off the Energy Revealed Program with our teacher workshop in fall 2018. Eighteen teachers gathered to find out more about the Energy Revealed Program.
“Students will build awareness of energy consumption and become environmental ambassadors among their families and community.” - Claudia Espinosa, Elementary Teacher, Collingwood School
Currently in the second year of a pilot program, Energy Revealed helps students understand the importance of energy efficiency to inspire them to take action to reduce energy use! This will increase their energy literacy and understanding of how energy systems and use can impact climate change.
Do you know of other teachers in your school or school board who would like to join the program? Whether they have energy metering technology, watt meters or no technology at all we welcome their participation - we have lesson plans for grades 4 to 12! All you need to do is let us know and we'll give the teacher a username and password to access the great teacher resources on energyrevealed.ca, plus receive a monthly newsletter with a spark inquiry activity. And last but not least, a chance to win some great prizes for your class.
Program Partners and Scope
We’re rolling out this program in Alberta, and ACEE will support teacher professional learning and supporting schools as we implement the program.
This is a joint venture with GreenLearning Canada, a national organization that offers climate, energy, and green economy education. GreenLearning will take the lead on program design, and following our Alberta launch, will roll out the national program.
We’re grateful to Greenplanet Energy Analytics, who assisted with the preliminary development of this exciting program!
