The program is registering for spring 2018.

Think! Energy program – a 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 reinforces learning requirements with relevant content and inquiry-based activities. Teachers receive a selection of supplemental instructional materials and optional lessons (all correlated to Michigan science standards and the common core) that may be used in addition to the presentation.


The main program covering the bulk of the state will be implemented in the spring semester. The Lansing area program takes place in fall.
