EmPowered Schools, formerly Green Schools Project--Alliance to Save Energy
Last modified 2024-02-22 09:56:04
In the 2000s, the Green Schools Program of the Alliance to Save Energy engaged students in creating energy-saving activities in their schools, using hands-on, real-world projects.
Now (2024) ASE runs EmPowered Schools, with resources to engage students in making their schools more energy efficient.
The EmPowered Schools Program provides teachers, administrators, and facilities staff with a wealth of information and resources to implement the program at your school. A typical EmPowered team consists of one team leader (typically a teacher) and students in a class, club, or other group. The program is designed to require minimal prep time for teachers and focuses on hands-on activities, video lessons, and a visually rich web platform.
The organizers seek to make the EmPowered program simple and effective for teachers to implement. Each EmPowered team has a local project leader who will work with you and ensure that your team is making progress toward program completion. Some teachers make EmPowered a part of their curriculum, choosing a class period that will function as the EmPowered Team. Similarly, many schools create a student club to implement the program, utilizing lunch periods or time after school to hold meetings and pursue projects.
