About this guide

Here are 231 sites and events that provide students with meaningful experiences and expose them to innovative and/or historical examples of energy production and use. Sites include not only power plants but buildings, historical sites, parks, and other places where notable energy production and/or energy use are in evidence. We provide you with as much detail as available for planning trips, including hours, appropriate ages, appropriate contact information, location, notable features, and more.

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 or you may request a copy from us (limited availability).
