STUDENT ENERGY IS A GLOBAL NOT-FOR-PROFIT DEDICATED TO CREATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS WHO WILL TRANSITION THE WORLD TO A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUTURE.
Students energy encourages youth engagement with energy: In the industry, in global forums, and their communities. Students should have a voice wherever their future is being determined.
This page is a good resources for learning about different methods of both traditional energy sources and sustainable energy sources. Use it as a tool to build your own lesson or a resource students can use to dive deeper in to their own research. Includes videos of a verity of alternative energy sources.

One of the best ways to teach high school students about renewable energy technologies is to get hands-on by building working models. In this fun, engaging science program, high school students will learn how to build a wind turbine, solar oven, hydroelectric generator or biogas generator—so they can see firsthand how applied science is helping create a more sustainable future. This program also features lessons for middle-school students.
With curriculum resources for every province and territory, our lessons and detailed construction plans give you all the tools you need to spark interest in and engage your students with a hands-on experience of renewable energy technologies.
