The Xcel Energy School Education program helps students at participating schools learn about energy efficiency and how they can make an impact at their school and home.
What do we do?
The Xcel Energy School Education program provides classroom instruction, posters and activities aligned to national and state learning standards and Take Action Kits filled with energy saving devices. These items are designed to open students’ and parents’ eyes to the energy-saving potential of simple, easy-to-implement conservation practices. It’s a fun and informative program that encourages students and their families to better manage their energy use and make good decisions about the products they buy every day.
All the materials are curriculum-based and carry lifelong lessons that students will use as they become energy consumers.
When and where is the program offered?
The Xcel Energy School Education program is offered in Colorado, Minnesota and New Mexico this fall. In Colorado and Minnesota, the program is available for sixth and fifth grade classes. In New Mexico, the program is open to fifth grade classes.
