SEI is dedicated to being a pioneer for K-12 and collegiate sustainability education. Our ever-evolving curriculum library welcomes a new unit this month: Solar for Aquaponics Extension Unit for the existing Aquaponics: Design, Build & Sustain project-based learning activity. The unit teaches students about the benefits and fundamentals of solar energy and guides them to, through their own analysis, design and size an off-grid, ground-mounted solar PV system to power pumps in the aquaponics system.
This year alone, SEI has launched a Biomimicry project-based learning activity, a School Solar Conservation Guide, and a Solar Certificate. Curricula and guides can be purchased for $50 on the website, while certificates can be purchased for $100.
Strategic Energy Innovations is pleased to announce the launch of a new state-wide energy education and workforce development program: Energize Colleges. Through this vanguard new effort, we’ll support 12 California colleges and universities to deepen energy education and grow energy internship programs to build a highly qualified energy workforce.
