These are dozens of sites and events that provide students with meaningful experiences and expose them to innovative and/or historical examples of energy production and use. We focus on places where energy-science serves society’s needs with innovation and environmental awareness.
You are welcome to contact us to discuss these sites and others, and we are always looking for information about how educators have experienced sites and events, and have made educational use of them. To share ideas, please use the forum on our bulletin board:

A special publication, Learning about Energy with Field Trips, June 2007, highlights trips in and around Massachusetts, especially sites with multiple functions and with educational missions. You can download a copy of the 32 page guide (click below) or you may request a copy from us (limited availability).
