THINK! ENERGY program – a 45 to 60 minute interactive, hands-on presentation with a take home energy efficiency kit for each participating student and teacher. The program teaches the importance of energy, natural resources and environmental resources, and gives each participating student’s family energy-efficient technologies to install at home. The program is easy to implement and also reinforces learning requirements with relevant content and inquiry based activities. Teachers receive a selection of supplemental instructional materials and optional lessons (all correlated to state learning standards) that may be used in addition to the presentation.


For more information or questions, please contact National Energy Foundation at 855-494-2944 or e-mail


The THINK! ENERGY program is not currently registering for the spring of 2014, please check back later.
