  2. Our Mission: ENERGY LITERACY!

  3. Who is our target? Students!

  4. And Teachers! By inspiring just one teacher to teach about the research at FSEC, we reach thousands and thousands of students.

  5. What is Our Approach? • Curriculum Development • Professional Development for Teachers • Collaborative Relationships • Programs & Events

  6. Curriculum Development • Aligned with the Sunshine State Standards • Relates to FSEC Research • Content driven • Hands-on • Inquiry based • Relevant

  7. Curriculum Units • Solar Matters I,II & III (K-2, 3-5,6-8) • High Energy Hydrogen I, II, & III • Understanding Solar Energy (9-12) • Alternative Fuel Matters • Building Performance Matters (9-12)

  8. Curriculum Kits All Curriculum Units have kits • Hands-on • Not normally found in science labs • Reduces intimidation – freedom to explore new technologies

  9. Resources • Lending Library • Kits • Books • DVDs • Solar Oven • Websites • Us!

  10. Websites • FSEC Website • Curriculum info • Events • EnergyWhiz Website • Sunsmart schools data • Activities for students www.energywhiz.com

  11. Professional Development • Summer Institutes • Workshops • In-service • Summer Industrial Fellowships for Teachers (SIFT)

  12. Collaborative Relationships • Space Coast Science Education Alliance • Circle of Science • District Science Coordinators & Teachers • Community Colleges & Universities • Utility Providers • School Districts

  13. Utility Report Card • The Utility Report Cards (URC) is a web-based Energy Information System that reports and graphs monthly utility data for schools. • Partners Include • Seminole, Brevard, Indian River and Orange County Public Schools • Florida Solar Energy Center • Orlando Utilities Commission • Progress Energy, Florida Power and Light • Florida Energy Office • Department of Energy
