Energy & Society

PLT's Energy & Society program provides formal and non-formal educators with tools and activities to help students in grades PreK-8 learn about their relationship with energy and investigate the environmental issues related to energy's role in society. Energy & Society helps students develop critical thinking skills to make decisions about their personal energy use. In addition to hands-on activities, Energy & Society integrates music and dance to enhance the study of energy issues. Energy & Society is correlated to the TEKS. 

Workshops are available with a registration of $50 per person.
