YOU Can Support Energy Literacy
Help us bring hands-on, minds-on energy education to more students across Vermont. Here are six ways you can support our work:
You can give online right now. More funding allows us to reach more students. It’s as simple as that.
Let a teacher know about our programs.
VEEP can bring one energy workshop into any class in Vermont for FREE during the 2015/16 school year (plus an additional free Modeling Climate Science workshop for their middle school classroom). Or tell them about our wide range of curricula with teacher support.
Help boxes of our equipment get to schools.
Volunteer to move curriculum support kits around the state, or provide short-term storage and a transfer location for teachers and VEEP educators to pick up or drop off a few boxes. If you can help, contact us.
If you work in the energy industry, join our list of experts.
We are always collecting names of folks who are available to provide energy tours to schools, work with classes on projects, or talk to classes about your work. Please be in touch if this is something you’re interested in.
If you work with teens, sign them up for TRY: Renewable Energy.
Teens Reaching Youth for the Environment: Renewable Energy is a service learning leadership program that trains teens in grades 6–12 to teach lessons on wind and solar energy to younger students in grades K–3. The program is a partnership between VEEP and the UVM Extension 4-H Teen Leadership program: learn more at the UVM Extension website.
Keep up to date with VEEP’s work and more ways you can get involved.
