Youth Energy Action Project Institute

for youth in grades 4-9

Energy Action Project Institute (EAPI) supports teachers and youth who want to take action on energy challenges in their school, community, or state. 

Teams can engage in this program for one or two semesters a year and are provided a large range of support in project planning and implementation. This program includes all the attributes to support successful Project-Based Learning, including coherent learning opportunities with embedded transferable skill development, naturally authentic audiences, and room for students to personalize according to interests. 

Teams are partnered with a regional VEEP/NHEEP Energy Project Advisor, who is available to support teacher/student teams with energy project planning, resources (including introductions to energy specialists/consultants) and project execution. 

The program begins with a meeting with your Energy Project Advisor.  A January Project Launch event will give teams a chance to share stories and progress in preparation for project execution. The program wraps up with an end of year action showcase and celebration. Project Advisors also provide continuity between school years, as needed. 

(Flexible rolling admissions options can be discussed, in coordination with Mariah Keagy, Energy Action Program Manager.)

January project Launch date: TBD
